  1. The Apevia is a relatively low quality PSU of obsolete design. So youare planning on replacing a cheapo 600 watt PSU with a cheapo 700 watt PSU?

    The Corsair is a much better PSU.

    I highly recommend you to buy a quality PSU. A low quality PSU can become a nightmare.
    Two GTX460 in SLI need around 300W for themshelves. Therefore, a quality 600W PSU with four 6-pin PCIe connectors is recommended.
    Here you have some good options:

  3. yeah the corsair is the obvious choice, so you really have to spend the 80-90 for a quality psu it seems, but I'm just trying to cut corners to bring down my overall costs which include a motherboard, power supply, ram, and inevitably a cpu upgrade of some sort.
