I was planning to purchase one of these power supplies but cant decide between which. The silverstone at newegg cost 125 vs 130 of the seasonic. I plan to eventually SLI two 8800 gts 512s overclocked.

Consider this one instead. It has higher wattage, better 12v rail ratings, and output is rock solid, for cheaper than those two you're comparing. I use it.

Or if you don't mind the big $80 mail in rebate, get this one. It's just $90 after mail in rebate, for a 1000w psu. While the 12v ampage (4x20 amps) is the same as the 850w unit, which is rather poor for 1kilowatt psu, it's still good brand plus high total wattage. This unit for $90 is an unbeatable value.

yeah, i dont know if epower is a good brand though. And i chose these two psu because they were modular. With my case i need optimal airflow. A LC17 HTPC case, but for high end gaming.

For high end gaming, you should really get at least an atx mid tower, ideally full tower. That HTPC just won't cut it even with modular psu. Those things are meant to be small and quiet, not cool.

EPower is not a bad brand, just an unknown. Reviews are good, and I'm pretty impressed after using it. Besides, the second on is OCZ, which is considered a good brand. If you don't mind the big mir, it's the best bang for the buck too.

I generally go with Seasonic PSU as they are a well established PSU manufacturer (OEM manufacturer too) and have definitely earned their reputation for quality and reliability.

I agree with you jaguarskx as I have had Seasonic psu in the past and they all have been good to me, but silverstone, I am just not sure, its cheaper and it has 700 watts over the 600. Still havent been able to choose one.
