I been going around in circle with this recent build, my Raidmax 700 w PSU died and I need a replacement (praying my other components are ok). I did some research and I figured that I need 800 (850 watts on the safe side). Anybody got an recommendations. I am in need and I want to get this build done. It has been a nightmare so far. Please help! Thank you.

Raidmax is crap. You are lucky it did not explode. Anyway, the top 3 brands are Seasonic/XFX, Silverstone, and some of the Higher end Corsair units, NOT THE CX series. This link goes to a community piled list of current PSU's and are ordered by reliability and how reliable the components are.

A quality PSU is the most important part of your system. You can cut corners on other parts & get away with it, but not on a PSU. Ask anyone who lost valuable parts due to a cheap PSU taking them with it.

X, I been check the list and there are some good options for my price range. SR, thanks for the option I will delve more into it. Yet got one more thing. If worst case scenario happens (parts are no more), what is my next step?
