TX 750M or CX 750M?

I'm looking at possibly purchasing one of these units (if it's the TX, probably today since Newegg is having a deal on it) and I was curious if the extra 15$ justified the possible increase in quality. I know that the TX series are very solid (not sure if the modular units are made by the same manufacturer) and both have single 12V rails. I only plan on doing modest overclocking on the CPU (nothing crazy) and possibly SLI or Crossfire in the future, so I didn't know if the CX line would suit my needs. Thanks again!

Buy the TX; it's on a whole different level than the CX models. CX is budget and TX is enthusiast. The extra $15 is worth it especially if you plan to overclock or SLI/Crossfire.

The CX line would work for your needs, but I'd still get the TX. Higher quality components, different OEMs etc etc.

Thanks for all of your inputs! I was about to purchase the TX, but I managed to win a bid on this unit: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650xxxb9

Does this one fare well? It was listed as a tier 2 I believe
