Whats a good reliable PSU?

Hey guys I'm looking for a strong, reliable, fully modular, and fairly priced PSU. I would like it to be strong enough to SLI 2 780Ti's. I've seen a Seasonic 1000W, but I would like good advice as well.

  1. Made by the reigning King of PSUs Superflower with an unparalleled 10 year warranty:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Power Supply: EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($109.99 @ NCIX US)
    Total: $109.99
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

  2. Both Superflower and Seasonic make great PSU and both should handle SLI 780Ti no problem just buy which ever is cheaper.
  3. Is it that EVGA one? Is 850W enough for a 780Ti plus everything else?
    I mean it's fine if I overjuice the PC a bit, but I at least don't wanna be left with too LITTLE.

    Indeed Sir. I can link your the 1000W incase you want to do TRI-SLI if you want.
  5. The EVGA 850w should be able to power 2 780ti no problem but if you want to be sure they also make 1000w version

    If you say so, professor.
  9. Any other modestly priced platinum PSU's?
    I dont really care too much about the warranties, as long as it's at least a few years; I can replace a PSU if it dies.
    However I just dont want it to spark and kaput after a few months of hard drainage; I do plan to overclock some parts as time passes.
