Hey guys,

I was going to get the Corsair 600W with my build but then the stores nearby no longer sell it so I'm in search of a new one. I WAS looking at the CoolerMaster GX 750W, however I heard that its not that great, despite its high watts and name.

Could anyone suggest me some good PSUs that will go with my build? I live in Australia, so there's a few that you can get in America that I can't get here.

My current rig is:
Quote:

Intel Core i5 2500K
Corsair Carbide CC400
SATA Pioneer-219L
8GB (4Gx2) 1600 G.Skill Ripjaws-X
ASRock Extreme3 Gen 3 Motherboard
CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ CPU Cooler


I'm looking to spend no more then $150, the lower the better. I MAY be thinking of crossfiring in the future.

Some websites for australian parts reference (I also have access to):

Both 750W PSUs look good, haha I'm not sure which one to get. I quickly searched up the Antec TruePower 750W though on PCD.I.Y so I can easily go and grab it, so I may be leaning more towards it!

I'm too lazy to make a post with tons of links but I went to the pccasegear website and I'd say get anything in the flavor of around 600W-700W from FSP aurum, SeaSonic M12 (this is what I use and the voltages are tight and constant), silverstone Strider or Strider Plus or Antec High Current Gamer series. The antec high current gamer and silverstone strider and strider plus series are the most cost effective on that website.

The Antec has modular cables and is a rock solid unit and a very good value.
