I need a new psu and I have to choose between one from Seasonic and one from Raidmax, but I'm unsure which one to buy. I found this http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?1080... that ranked Seasonic in Tier 1 and Raidmax in Tier 5. It is from 2006 so it is old. Is this still the case? Is Raidmax still crap and Seasonic really good? Or is there a third psu I should buy?

The extremesystems list is now maintained at the Newegg forums, still a bit jumbled but they do update it occasionally
Raidmax has made an attempt or 2 but is still bottom of the barrel, imo

SeaSonic is still the King of Kings as far as power supplies go. SeaSonic actually manufactures power supplies for XFX, Antec, and Corsair. Avoid Raidmax like the plague
