More about which brand
  1. hes right--seasonic are a quality maker

    out of the ones you list i would go for

    seasonic
    corsair
    xfx
  2. Seasonic, XFX, Antec and Corsair (TX enthusiast line is better than the CX Builder line) are outstanding. Silverstone, Bequiet and OCZ are excellent, be more careful with the specific model that you purchase. Stay away from the Coolermaster Extreme Power PSUs - they are craptastic. The only PSU that I would consider from CM are the Silent Pro products.

    I would personally get one of the Seasonic S12II or M12II, XFX Pro series, Corsair TX or Antec HCG. What are your system components?

  4. X-series is SWEET!
  5. so which would be the better buy ?? is it worth the 50 quid extra for the 150 w and 80+platinum ???


    Seasonic P1000W, Modular, 92% Eff', 80 PLUS Platinum,

    Seasonic X-Series SS-850KM, Modular, 80 PLUS Gold,

  6. You don't need the extra 150W for your setup and the power savings from the efficiency difference between Gold/Platinum would take a long time to pay back that 50 quid.
  7. Any of them will work ;)

    FURTHER NOTICE

    If you notice the fan not spinning up, this is one of the technologies in the power supply. The power supply is not on load so there is no need for the fan to spin up! Cool eh? :D
  8. Went for the seasonic 1000w platinum in the end , I know it's overkill or current system , but I want this system to be upgradeable over the years , and with that PSU it should be able to take anything I throw at it , plus it has a 7 year warranty ,
    Thanks for your help guys :)
