Default Quick question

I need to get a new power supply for the girlfriend and was going to go with a Corsair hx520. As I was checking out NCIX they have a Seasonic M12 2 500 watt modular on sale for 99.99 plus free ground shipping which will make it cheaper than the Corsair. Are they about the same in terms of quality? I'm thinking yes but just want to double check.

Thanks guys.

Internally they are pretty much the same PSU but Corsair has added a bit longer cables along with the FlexForce flat modular cables.
