So I am mainly looking at these: Corsair Professional Series HX+ 1050W '80Plus Gold http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Seasonic X-Series 1050w '80 Plus Gold' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Silverstone Strider Gold 1000w '80 Plus Gold' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... XFX 1050W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Gold' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I really don't know anything about the brand etc, but by the look of it, I kinda like the Seasonic X-Series 1050w. and the XFX one is actually about $30 cheaper in my country. So any comments or suggestion would be appreciated and the following 3 is slightly more expensive and not sure if they are worth the extra money XFX 1000W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Platinum' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P10 1000W '80 Plus Gold' Seasonic 1000w '80 Plus Platinum' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My rig will be CPU:3930k OC to 4.6ghz Mobo: Asus rampage 4 extreme GPU: 2 way CF Sapphire 7970 ghz Ram:16g corsair vengeance Cooler: H100 SSD: Samsung 830 256gb HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB More about : 1000w psu corsair silverstone seasonic strife_ff7 a b ) Power supply October 13, 2012 10:41:43 PM Seasonic x is a top of the line psu. A good 850w psu would be enough for your rig. This is a great 850w psu so it will be more than enough seasonic x 850w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ferris847 October 13, 2012 11:20:17 PM there is a chance that i might run 3 way crossfire in the future, so i am not sure 850W would be enough, i like to leave some room too. I am now basically down to the choice between XFX 1050W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Gold' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] xfx%201050 Seasonic X-Series 1050w '80 Plus Gold' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] nic%201050 and Seasonic 1000w '80 Plus Platinum' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] ic%201000w is the platinum worth the extra money?

Some would say the gold isn't worth the extra money so platinum is difinitely overkill. ferris847 October 14, 2012 9:32:14 AM I think i will just grab a XFX 1050W gold, since they are cheaper and i like the look of it Thanks for your reply. AlienIsGOD October 14, 2012 10:52:04 AM Seasonic and Corsair are the best quality PSUs that you have listed. I wouldnt go for the XFX one myself. ferris847 October 14, 2012 11:09:44 AM From what i have read, the xfx is made by seasonic, they are pretty much/mostly the same psu.
