Exclamation

Overall, Seasonic power supply units are the best because they use high quality components, they are properly designed and well assembled, their performance is excellent, and they are very reliable.

However. Many Corsair power supply units are also of high quality, and are on par with the Seasonic units.

The choice of which brand and model to use depends on the power requirement of the computer system, PSU availability, PSU price, and also on good and thorough PSU reviews from web sites such as here (Hardware Secrets), JonnyGuru, TechPowerUp, HardOCP, KitGuru, XBitLabs and other similar sites.

Some Corsair units like the AX series are manufactured by Seasonic.

Seasonic don't offer anything but great PSUs. Even their most budget lineup (the S12II) are excellent. They are quite a bit better than Corsair's budget lineup (CX series). As Merman pointed out, however, some corsair PSUs are built by Seasonic, and those are also excellent.

The number of monitors has no effect on the power requirements, as monitors have their own power supply.

The really good Corsairs are the Seasonic built ones (TX v2 series, AX series), but Seasonic M12II and G Series can be cheaper.

Seasonic makes the best PSU's on market hands down. Based on your computer specs, Seasonic SS-430GB will be more than sufficient.
