Given the choice I'd take the OCZ, higher 12v rating and the pair of pcie connectors that you'll need The CM Elite Power series is well known crap paddy365 September 3, 2012 8:11:38 PM Ok, would OCZ be a good brand of PSU? delluser1 a c 242 ) Power supply September 3, 2012 11:11:05 PM paddy365 said:Ok, would OCZ be a good brand of PSU? OCZ is decent, good and bad like most other brands There are no reviews of that model but based on your budget I'd give the go ahead for the reasons I stated in my last post Rugger a c 158 ) Power supply September 4, 2012 1:17:01 PM XFX and OCZ have some great prices on PSUs in the UK. Take a look at the OCZ ZS 550 and the XFX Core 550W; either will handle any single GPU PC that you can make, are good quality, and can be bought for about 45-50. I'd stick with the XFX.
