Between the two listed, one vote for the EVGA Supernova NEX650G...

The evga is alot more quality than the cx line from corsair. They are great psus. Other corsair lines are superb, the cx is just the dud.

CX 600m sucks. I have had 2 bad ones. One time I was lucky enough to just return it the next day. The next time it was running in a build for 6 months and I decided to upgrade that build and the PC didnt start.

That EVGA is ok but not the same as the G2's that everyone is raving about. The Corsair is their bottom of the line and still Bronze rated. Again, ok, but there's better. I would look at something that's Gold and see the difference in pricing and see if you can swing that.
