Question Corsair 620HX or Kingwin Mach 1

I"m the first to admit that I know very little about power supplies. I would be fairly comfortable testifying that they supply power, but beyond that ... well, I don't know much.

I'm pretty confident that 600 Watts will be enough to power my planned build, so I don't really need advice on wattage. All the other specs related to PS's are what confuse me.

I've narrowed my choices down to two ... The corsair 620HX and the Kingwin Mach 1 (700 or 800W).

Which of these would you PS gurus recommend?

I'd tend to go for the Corsair. The HX series are quality PSUs

If the only options are those two, then I vote for Corsair over Kingwin.

I haven't actually built it yet but here's what I've got planned:

Asus P6T Deluxe Mobo
i7 920 cpu
BFG geforce gtx 285 OC+
6GB corsair dominator trip channel pc12800 RAM
4-120mm fans & 1-200mm fan
Asus xonar dx sound card
heatsink ... yet to be decided
1-DVD burner
1-WD 1TB Caviar black HDD

I don't over clock much, so I figure 620W will be enough ... Am I right?
