1000W PSU of Corsair/Silverstone/Seasonic

Hi I am very new to the psu and not sure what to look at or the reputations of these psu.

So I am mainly looking at these:

Corsair Professional Series HX+ 1050W '80Plus Gold
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139034&Tpk=corsair%20hx%201050

Seasonic X-Series 1050w '80 Plus Gold'
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151110&Tpk=Seasonic%201050

Silverstone Strider Gold 1000w '80 Plus Gold'
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256068

XFX 1050W Black Edition Pro '80Plus Gold'
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207021&Tpk=xfx%201050

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=N82E16817207019&Tpk=XFX%201000W

BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P10 1000W '80 Plus Gold'

Seasonic 1000w '80 Plus Platinum'

More about 1000w corsair silverstone seasonic
  1. 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=N82E16817151102
  2. 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?
  3. Just get the seasonic x 1050w. Some would say the gold isn't worth the extra money so platinum is difinitely overkill.
  4. 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.
  5. Seasonic and Corsair are the best quality PSUs that you have listed. I wouldnt go for the XFX one myself.
  6. From what i have read, the xfx is made by seasonic, they are pretty much/mostly the same psu. But from where I live, the xfx is cheaper
