    I'm building an new system that will have a P II X6 1075T and the usual other stuff. Midrange graphics card, probably a 5770. I currently have a earthwatts 650 in my Q6600 system that I can use and I also have a Neo Eco 620 that I just got from newegg when they had them for 35.00 AR. Is there any appreciable difference in either of these PS? Any good reason to pick on over the other?

    Still wondering about this... the 620 has a single 12v rail and the 650 has dual 12v rails. Is there a benefit to one or the other?

    If designed properly, dual rails will work just like single rail.

    The PSUs are fairly equivalent. One is made by Delta and the other by Seasonic. Both are fairly decent - not the best in the world, but solid enough.

    Maybe use the one with the higher +12v? For the dual rail, look up the "combined" power.
