I'm looking for buy a new power supply but I'm not sure which is the best value in terms of reliability vs features vs price.
I KNOW I'm going to get flamed for this, but I'm really trying to spend as little as possible for the PSU, but not exactly skimping out and buying garbage, if y'know what I mean.
My story is that i'm basically upgrading to two GTX560s for an SLI config (which is why I need to save as much $$$ as I can), so I think 750W is the decent amount of power. I'm open to anything from 700W and up if it'll work and be of good value (~$60-$70). Any other suggestions?
I've done a bit of research and the best value PSUs that I can come up with are:
All of these can be had for $60 after some rebate. I've read the reviews and they all recieve extremely positive reviews (every review site I've read recommends them all). I don't care much about the Fatal1ty branding, and I think OCZ PSUs are fine. I'm using one as I type (it's been over a year).
I'm just having a hard time choosing because the way I see it is that the OCZ has a modular design which I think is a must in these modern times.... as compared to the PCP&P which is of slightly higher quality, but has a mess of permanent cables (is it worth the trade off?)
I'm using an OCZ as well and I'm very happy with it. I've ordered an 850 fatality for my sli GTX 670 and that's going really well as well, it's fully modular. My older OCZ isn't and the cables get pretty annoying. I think you're better off with a modular PSU rather than a traditional PSU.
I just keep an eye out for sales and I've found that a 'decent' 750W power supply can be had for $60 (such as, the three PSUs I listed in the original post).
I came to the forum to ask if there were any other power supplies around the same price (or cheaper) I should consider for my purposes. If not, I'm perfectly happy with the ones I listed, they have all the connections and the recommendations that I need to be satisfied.
Of course, I could buy something better. There is always something better, at a price... which is not the point of this thread. Or else I would've bought a 1000W+ Seasonic already.
They are the same PSUs, same SKU and I did mention somewhere that I they could be purchased for $60. I just didn't bother to search for each specific one until you asked, I'm not one to keep track of every single sale in the PC world. So I came here to ask if anyone else encountered a better deal/value for a PSU, which I might have missed (most likely).
Exactly my point, you see
From $130, down to $60. More than 50% in savings!!!
