If not can you recommend a better one in the same price range.

Note:I dont care if it's modular or not.
Thank you for replying.

well antec make an excellent psu in your range for the mentioned cases

500watts will run any single card and you only need 600 watts to power most 2 of newer cards and 700 watts for 2 older cards, even ati even reccomends 850watts for 2 5970

i think you'll be happy with the antec or corsair psu

Why are you looking for a 850W-1000W PSU?

Unless you are planning on tri-sli or something there really is no need.

+1 for Obsidian86's recommendation:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Even then, unless you are planning on SLI/Crossfire no point. Either save your money or get better gfx/cpu would be my advice.

obsidian - No competent technical reviews either. Considering their past history and their half hearted attempts to improve quality I am not surprised.

True Rosewil is not not Antec but it will do.

Get the corsair or antec. Seriously. They haven't had the issues Rosewill has, and the units linked are solid units capable of powering almost any system today flawlessly. You won't have issues in the future either - PCs with >750W of consumption are a rarity, and will continue to be a rarity due to the difficulty of cooling and the cost of energy.

Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty.

+1 what obsidian86

I started posting early last year that power consumption would be decreasing. There was a pig push in the mainstream/business community to reduce energy costs. Gamers and enthusists are benefitting also.

Good point - I forgot to mention Seasonic. They're an excellent choice as well.
