this one has 2 +12v rails @25A it is like one +12v rail @50A mixed? it should be enough for the gtx 760 that requires 30A? also i can find the 700w version of this psu at the same price as the zt550w which is 7 euros more also it isn't 80+ bronze but only 80plus and have 3 years warranty instead of 5 what i should do?

Having two separate +12V rails does not give two Xs the amperage, it is slightly less, it is a very technical area that is hard for me to explain so here is a link for you to read rather than me waffle on and make very little if any sense :unsure:

Personally I prefer a single 12V rail and a 5 year warranty in a PSU, an example of what you should consider Here

Gotcha :thumbsup:

The ZT it is then, it costs more because it is modular whereas the TX650 is not.

actually it was about 89 euros the ocz zt 550 is ~77 euros and the 650 and 750 versions ~90 ~91 euros for now that they are on discount do you think i should give the extra 13-14 euros for the 650w or 750w version or i should go for the 550w?

Not a case that I would consider I`m afraid, it is made of plastic which holds in the heat + it does not have a front USB 3.0 port (there is one internal) :(

Alternative cases to consider here and here
