Hi all, I'm trying to find some information about these 2 power supplies, I've read they're great in some places and horrible in others, any input you can give me would be most appreciated.

These are the 2 Im looking at.

Don't know about the 900 watt unit.
The 700 watt unit is "peak" rated, it's built on a CWT 550PSH platform ( same as the Corsair 550 ) and is more than enough for your specs.

The Rocketfish 700 watt power supply is made by Huntkey according to Jonny Guru.

Rocketfish? Isn't that a Best Buy house brand?

Found the old thread. Rocketfish and Dynex are both owned by Best Buy. Is Future Shop the Canadian version of Best Buy?

Here's a link to a technical review of the 700 watt power supply over at Hardware Secrets:

Adequate but not exactly a stellar performer.

The review is for the original "WPS" Rocketfish, the OP is looking at the "WPS2"
Rocketfish , like other vendors , sometimes change's oem's.

Here's a couple of link's for you
