Choosing the right PSU

Are OCZ psu reliable? i plan on buying a OCZ OCZ750FTY 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Power Supply and i would like to know any problems or experiences you guys have had with this psu company.

    It really depends on the OEM that OCZ used.. some of their psu hit the target.. and some simply failed...

    OCZ does have the best cost/benefit ratio. You get a 750W power supply for around $100 before MIR. It's also 80 plus bronze certfied and it's confirmed by hardwaresecrets:

    If you can, I would really go for the Antec HCG 750W or something by XFX [Seasonic has manufactured some PSU for them]. Corsair and Seasonic are more pricey but are well worth it. Antec brings their "high standards" [they are reliable by the way haha] to the budget level. So either one of those brands won't be a bad choice.
  2. thanks for the reply i will look into the antec and corsair units. but im on a $100-$150 budget.
  3. would this be a good choice?
    Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  4. The antec is a good unit but since you're on a $100-150 unit then I'll recommend quite a few units within that price ratio for you.

    XFX PRO 750W (based on seasonic internals)

    Corsair TX 750 V2 (based on seasonic internals)

    Seasonic X 650 Gold (one of the best)

    Corsair HX 750

    Antec TP 750

    Thermaltake Toughpower 750
  5. ok i think i'm gonna go with the xfx because i like the semi modular feature.
