I have a Corsair HX520 in my desktop. Probably not the best Corsair anymore but still running strong, knock on wood...
Get this: Newegg.ca - Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

News flash: OCZ-branded PSUs are completely different from anything ever sold under the PCP&C name, and are not in the same performance league. Never have been.
