I would not get the EVGA BR as it's unreviewed. Get what mark5916 suggest, the CX450.

Well, those are just budget non Group regulated PSUs from EVGA.

How good they are...who knows, but i doubt they will be better than the Corsair CX series PSUs.

It might still be group regulated. No pictures of the internals, though.

The BR's have DC-DC converters so it wouldn't make sense that they are group regulated.

Yep, that's what i believe too.

It's either Group Regulated (+12V and 5V are generated together), Independent (all DC outputs are generated by independent circuits) or they use DC-DC converters. (on the minor 3.3V and 5V rails)

But is it really confirmed to have DC-DC? I don't trust what the manufacturer says ever. There's no internal pictures of it which is why I say it may be still group regulated.
