I would prefer a Corsair PSU, they're guaranteed to have high quality.

There is always better it depends on budget. BUT the one you have chosen is fine and a good brand.

Good brand means nothing. It's who the OEM is that's important.

ok then who is the OEM. and are you saying me confirming he has chosen a good "Brand" is wrong.

  • The oem for that XFX is Seasonic.
  • Only the upper end Corsair AX power supplies (650AX - AX860) and some of their HX series are manufactured by Seasonic. The Corsair CX series and such are manufactured mostly by CWT.

A brand is not particularly important. Most psu companies(with the exception of seasonic, superflower, fsp and a few others) do not make their own power supplies, but rather have rebranded units from manufacturers. For instance, corsair's power supplies are made by flextronics, cwt, seasonic, and greatwall. Instead you need to find out which oem the unit you're looking at is and then from there you can check to find out how good they are.
