My System Specs

Default OCZ StealthXStream vs. ModXStream

So I am going to get an Asus GTS 250, and along with than I need a new power supply. My dad lives in the United States, so I can get stuff over there. There is an OCZ 700W StealthXStream for $53 and a ModXStream 600W for $55. There is a 100W difference, but I can't tell anything else appart. The Stealth comes with 1 six and 1 eight pin PCI-e connecter, and the Mod only has 2 six pins. You owners of these power supplies, could you care to share your thoughts?

Thanks

ModXStream is modular hence the pricier of the two. ModXtream has 1 PCI-e 6-pin +2, so pretty much the same except for the cabling.

The X3 is a Server Based 100% Modular Design.

I believe the OCZ's have the major connectors hardwired still.

Two real different grades of PSU in my honest opinion.
