In my country there isn't a great variety of psu's like in the States, Canada or Europe, so the best option right now for my rig I think is the Corsair HX850 80 PLUS Silver. All the reviews I have found qualify this model very well, but all the reviews are from 2009 - 2010, so I'm hesitating if this model is still good for today's expectation of a good and cuality psu. I also read some comments from owners complaining about loud fan noises or "electric" noises. The warranty here is only 1 year so I have to make a very good choice not to choose psu models with high fail ratings.

The rig I planned is Gigabyte Z77X UD5H, i5 3570k, 2 x Asus gtx 660ti DCII OC, 2 x 4gb Ram, Black Caviar 1TB, OCZ Vertex 4 128GB, Cooler Master Haf XM and the Corsair H100i.

Hope you guys can help me, ty! :D

Hi - that PSU should be fine HX series is just 1 step down from their prof AX series.
If you have Corsair's model # plz post it as the HX 850 I was looking at is gold
rated & the one you are asking about is silver rated.

But, I believe that this is a quality unit nonetheless.

Ah - found it - Jonnyguru (a top PSU review site) gave it an excellent review and 9.6 out of 10

Corsair power supplies are good in general and 850 watts should be enough to power the 2 660 TI's. I would say go for it.

I have the HX750 and am very pleased. It is not loud at all (silent enough for me). Usually it has a 7 year warranty which is pretty good. Even if you only get 1 year, the product is high quality. I hope this helps
