New PSU Selection!

Hi im looking forward to buy a new PSU from 2 of them:


1) Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 600W ($60 USD = Rs. 5,100/- PKR)
http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=5906&category_id=30
2) Cooler Master GX-550W ($70 USD = Rs. 6,000/- PKR)
http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6641


TBH im more interested in GX-550W as it has better features like Active PFC, Multiple Protection Design and 80 PLUS Bronze + 44amps on single 12v. These options can be very useful in country like mine where Power-Failure is very frequent and to be used with a UPS. For now they are in my Budget and CM has great repute here + better warranty policy. Please give suggestions and let me know which one should i go for?

If you go with any CM PSU, by all means get the 550W one. A single 12V rail is preferred over 2 or more. Active PFC is a good thing too.
These would be great if available to you. Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Corsair, Power Supplies, 501W - 600W

Sorry. Shipping would be costly anyway. Check user reviews on what ever you pick.

Is a PSU from the "Real Power" line from CM available in your price range? They're better than the extreme power series in terms of reliability.
