The first is $62 while the second is $112 so there are substantial savings here. I only need 500W. I'm just not sure of the quality of the SilverStone PSU? It's 80 PLUS certified... not sure if gold or bronze... probably the later. Online review seem positive about it.
Silverstone is a good brand, I have their 1200W bad boy sitting in my PC at this moment. The only downside to Silverstone, is they don't include on/off switches on the PSU. Since most Silverstone models are usually 100% modular, It's a shame to see this one isn't.
Corsair I've not had too much experience with previously, so I'll defer to more learned colleagues on that regard.
