Hi, Looking for a good quality 850W PSU for my new pc, can anybody recommend which of the following brands would be best? Any advice is much appreciated.

Antec 850W TruePower Quattro ATX & EPS 12V Power Supply, Modular Cables, Four 12V Rails, 80Plus Cert

Corsair HX-850 ATX Modular Power Supply

Thermaltake Tough Power 850W Q-FAN PSU


Thanks in advance ;)

The HX Corsair is a much better unit than the other two. If I were buying an 850 class PS the three I would chose from would be the HX Corsiar the SG Antec or the SeaSonic M12D.

First, here's a link to a good review site:

http://www.jonnyguru.com/

Because they are somewhat a smallish site, they don't have reviews of every PSU ever made, but have enough to give you clues as to what brands are good.

Second, you started out by asking the wrong question - you should have asked 'for this proposed PC, how much PSU do I really need?'.

Corsair HX850 is one of the best if not the best 850W PSU out there!
