The HX1050 hasn't been reviewed yet, but the XFX 1000w Platinum Black Edition is based on a platform that has been positively reviewed multiple times, so my vote goes to the XFX.

The Seasonic Platinum-1000 (SS-1000XP) uses the same design:

What are your system specs? You might not need a ~1kW PSU.

XFX for sure. It has higher efficiency and is made by SeaSonic.

My rig is :
Mother Board: Gigabyte Z77X UD5H
CPU: i5 3570k
GPU: 2 x Asus GTX 660ti DCII OC
SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB
HDD: Western Digital Black Cabiar 1TB
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)DDR3 1600
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i
CASE: Cooler Master HAF XM

I want to choose a PSU with a little more power than i need right now in case i upgrade my system in the next 1 or 2 years. I imagine that the case and the psu are the things I won't be changing so often.

Is 1000w too much overkill for my rig right now? would it be for an i7 3770k with 2 x asus gtx 680 DCII?

Its way to much .Xfx 750W/850W. Choose 1 of this too and u will be ok.
December 1, 2012 5:13:08 PM

The options in my country (Chile) around that wattage with stock right now are the following:

- XFX Pro Series 850W (850 W) 80 PLUS Silver
- Antec High Current Pro HCP-750 (750 W) 80 PLUS Gold
- Corsair HX CMPSU-750HX (750 W) 80PLUS Silver
- Corsair AX AX750 (750 W) 80PLUS Gold
- Thermaltake ToughPower Grand TPG-850M (850 W) 80 PLUS Gold (The only store that sells it in my country has only 3 months warranty! no way I'm going to take that risk)
- Corsair HX CMPSU-850HX (850 W) 80PLUS Silver
- Seasonic P SS-860XP (860 W) 80PLUS Platinum (The only store that sells it in my country has only 3 months warranty! no way I'm going to take that risk)
- Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold RS-800-80GA-D3 (800 W) 80PLUS Gold.
- Seasonic X SS-850KM (850 W) 80PLUS Gold (same store that sells the seasonic 860XP so the 850KM also has only 3 months warranty, so, I'm not taking this risk.)

which one should I go for? most of the psu's i just mencioned have 6 months to 1 year warranty.

One of the reasons why i was searching the HX1050w and the XFX 1000w platinum is that both of them have 1 year warranty, and that in Chile is the bigger warranty I'm going to get for a psu [I know,it sucks :(  ]

Hope you can help me choose guys, ty a lot!

ps: is 750w/850w enough for my rig but with an i7 3770k and 2 x asus gtx 680 DCII OC?

Well yes it is enough .


Look

437WGpu
77WCPu
15WHdd
16WRam
25WDvd

=570 add some OC =620W + 10Wfans and 15W another Hdd = 650W lets say.

So 750 W is way enough. They can even deliver more than 750W

So its bettwen Ax/Hx 750W .

I see warranty is a problem. But if u have money to spend take that 1 year .
