520W

Only about a $20 price difference, which is better?

This would be for:
(nforce 570/590 sli conroe board)
Conroe E6600 2.4 Ghz
2GB OCZ DDR2
Geforce 7900GT (2 maybe) or 1 7950GX2

Lol, he asks which is better, and you answer, yes. Good one :D

I dont' know which is better. The fact that the 700w is only $20 cheaper than the 520W leads me to believe that it doesnt' have the same build quality...Maybe that's just me though. I have the Powerstream 520W and its rock solid. Best powersupply I've owned...EVAR!!!

The 700w GameXStream is a better PSU. It is the forton.

Ok, GameXStream it is...Hey Jakup, I think I talked to you today on eVGA tech line, I asked about the shipment of the 7900GT SC Cards. :p
You said something like "Thanks for calling eVGA, this is Jacob how may I help you?"....Those cards better ship this week! >_<

Friend of mine ordered the 700W off newegg. First one was defective. They got it right the second time around.

OCZ makes a good power supply for the money. I love the powerstreams. They have a nice mirror finish to them that looks awesome if you have a case window.
