    I prefer single rail PSUs

    I'd go with a Corsair 950TX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139013


    If you were going to go all out I'd go with the PC Power&Cooling Turbo-Cool 1200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703012
  3. jeep11 - If I remember correctly just about all of the high quality power supplies rated at 1000 watts and above have genuine multiple rails.
  4. both look good and both being corsair i will go to the hardware shop tomorrow and go with 1 of them whats the difference of a single rail and muliple rails ?
