What is the difference between the 2? Which one is better? also is the Corsair Cx600 really that bad?

The CX series aren't good and aren't suitable for a gaming build or imo hardly any build due the fact that they are rated for only 30C.

I would for sure go with the capastone.

I am assuming the new G series is of same quality? Rosewill Capstone-G550 as it seems the other ones are out of stock or in short supply at most places.

If you want another reccomendation. There's the evga GS seasonic rebrand. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220gs0550v1

Or the G2. It's a little more costly though. Super flower http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1

no way to know yet. the photon series was a fail, they aren't close to the old capstone. the capstone G is made by enhance electronics and has no reviews.

darn it, I ordered the Capstone G as they were sold out of the old Capstones thinking it would be the same or better. I guess I will find out, I never thought it would be the PSU that I would spend the most time deciding on for a new PC.
