Hey Guys,

OCZ PowerStream 520 watt
http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=008355&cid=PS.808

OCZ GameXStream 600 watt
http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=010075&cid=PS.808

Which PSU would be the better choice (ignore the $10 price difference ATM). Any opinions or experiences with regards to the noise levels of these PSUs? I'm looking for a quiet one :)

There are some opinions here

Thanks!

GamerXStream is the better PSU. It is based off the Fortron

Thanks for the input. What does it mean for a PSU to be based on another?

And Fortron... makes good PSUs?

The GameXStream is also the #1 recommended power supply by the DFI Street forums (this is coming from DFI employees). The PowerStream was until the GameXStream came out, so you can't really go wrong, even if you don't have a DFI mobo.

I have no experience with any of those, but somebody already suggested the "OCZ GameXStream 600 watt"
as better PSU.
What I believe, in long run and if ever going SLI and/or overclocking you'll be much more happy with the 600 watt PSU plus I think it's a good price in CAD.
PS
It looks like you're in Toronto so here you can save $5 CAD more.
