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.

    Right now im looking at the Antec two/three hundred case.
  6. 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
  7. 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:

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

    i find it strange that it only has 6 pci connectors and other higher range 1000watt psu's have 8 pci connectors
  9. obsidian - No competent technical reviews either. Considering their past history and their half hearted attempts to improve quality I am not surprised.
  10. I'd get the antec or corsair mentioned above.

    I want to (kinda) future prof my new pc.
  12. I'd go with the Antec TPN, it's less expensive, more efficient and semi modular, which should help out at least a little in an Antec 200 or 300.

    True Rosewil is not not Antec but it will do.

    power consumption of pc's is going down not up

    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.

    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.
