My System Specs

Default OCZ StealthXstream 600W vs Seasonic M12 II 500W

Hey HWC,

The other thread wasn't getting any attention so i'll post it here.

So which one is better? say for a 5850??

The Seasonic one is $50 at NCIX and the OCZ one is $65 at NCIX.

Which one is best bang for the buck??

THX

seasonic is the 1 i would go with
NCIX.com - Buy Seasonic M12 II 500W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 80PLUS 6PIN PCI-W 120MM Fan - SS-500GM In Canada.
NCIX.com - Buy OCZ StealthXStream 600W ATX12V 20/24PIN Active PFC ATX Power Supply 120MM Fan Black - OCZ600SXS In Canada.
Just wondering where you got those prices. by the way i have the m12 500 watt there is no comparing them in my opinion the m12 is in a league of it's own

Why do you have two threads for the same question? And why is the thread here in "Off Topic" at all?

The Seasonic is a far better PSU. The StealthXStream is only good up to about 500W anyway, and the Seasonic is much better quality.
