Corsair or Seasonic?

Grixis

Bunch of great sales on Newegg and need help deciding on a power supply.

Seasonic 650w for $59.99 or the Corsair 500w for $39.99

Not sure if I even need the 650. My build says I only need 290 at the moment?: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1q0A8

Thanks!

Corsair if you don't plan on doing SLI, but if you do go with the SeaSonic, it's on a very nice discount right now.

Even if he does plan on doing Sli, 650w won't be enough probably, so he should just go for the corsair psu.

650w is enough for 660 SLI, the TDP would be around 430W, but in actuality like 500w give or take

Thanks for the help! Honestly I didnt even know what SLI was until I googled it like 10 mins ago -__-

That being said, I don't plan on doing SLI anytime soon, just wanted thoughts on quality / dependability.

If that's the case, just go with the Corsair, You won't need the wattage, it's cheaper and they are both very good brands.
