If the tx750 is cheaper than the xfx 750 and you could use the extra cash for something else, whether or not its on spent on the machine, then get the tx750.

Personally I would go with the Corsair over the XFX but that's only because I've got a bit of biased brand loyalty to it

the xfx is a better unit, but more expensive. better as in look up a review and see the graphs. best place for a psu review is johnnyguru. will you see a difference? nope, dont think so.

XFX XPS Black Edition 750W Power Supply Review

Corsair TX850 Power Supply Review

thats the 850 but its the same. efficiency is better on the xfx, as well as the 12v 'cleanliness' or whatever you spell it
dont like the 3.3v on the xfx bitching a bit, but its nothing to worry about.

Yes, it is worth it. And I know what I'm talking about a lot more than dangtx does. If you can afford it, go with the XFX.

im probably just gonna get the xfx then to make this easier its only a 35 dollar difference between that and the tx750 so i say that its worth $35 in the long run
