I'm looking for a new power supply to replace my current 500w one, in order to run a GTX 770 or R9 280X. I've narrowed it down to 3: http://goo.gl/huP85u http://goo.gl/VwnJR9 http://goo.gl/iyJnPq. I know that they are all decent quality but I'm just wondering which will last me the longest, be easiest for cable management and be the quietest. Thanks.

i would go with the be quiet psu and you can also try (see link) it also is a very good psu better build quality than yours listed above and it also can very quietly and since all cables are flat and it is a fully modular psu it will suite you well

You can go with either one 1. Seasonic, 2. XFX, both are solid one's. Don't go with Be Quite, not a trusted unit.

Be Quiet! Looks quite good, but I've heard a lot of positive feedback over the SEasonic and the XFX (which is made by Seasonic anyway)

OK, I'm going to assume that it is mainly personal preference between these three. Therefore I will go for whichever one is the cheaper at the time of purchase. Thanks for the help.

No mate its not a matter of personal choice. ◦"Be Quiet Dark Power Pro" is only TIER 3 Brand PSU, somewhat reliable, but not yours.

And what reviews are you talking about ? Did you find any decent site reviews on your Be Quite PSU ? I think the answer will be no. So those reviews don't count.

I would not go with that Be Quiet model. The OEM of that unit is HEC a bottom feeder
and a tier 5 (worst) PSU maker.

Be Quiet does have a few good ones, but not that one. Buy the least expensive of the other two.

As lonewolf said, no good reviews from "trusted review sites", such as Hardware secrets, jonnyguru, and Hardocp.

The Seasonic or the XFX (a rebranded seasonic). They are reliable as all get out. I have the seasonic you posted and I love it. It is silent, reliable and strong. It's built like a tank.
