Hello,

Guys i need help to decide which PSU i should buy, here's the PSU :

Corsair : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006

or

Seasonic : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151107

these two PSU cost the same in my country and now i need help deciding which one is better.

I'm really blind about this PSU thing, so please if you can keep it simple.

Thanks.

I think they both perform about the same.. but the seasonic is modular, it can save lots of space inside the case

Agreed...  they are both probably the same internally (AFIK the Corsair is just a rebranded Seasonic) so you might as well go with the one that has more features...  and Modular is a nice feature

3rd vote for modular. My PSU's box has a gaggle of unused wires that didn't need to be stuffed into some hiding spot inside the case.

4th vote for modular. Good quality power supplies like SeaSonic will have a standardized plug on the PSU end so if you, say, need 3 SATA cables worth of plugs and 0 molex, you can do that. SeaSonic makes Corsair units (except the HX1000), and uses almost the exact same design as the SeaSonic M12D units (instead of the more modern X series). But for the same price, go with modular.
