Hi there

Hope you all had a great Xmas. So my PSU is making some weird clicking noises and I think its about to go. (Raidmax 850AE) Yes I know Raidmax is bad I didn't do my research before I bought it and now I'm kicking myself for not buying a quality PSU.

My system is i5 3570k w/ cm hyper 212 +, p8z77-vpro
2 HD 6870s Xfire
Intel 120gb SSD 520series
2 HDD Green 1.5tb total
16gb Corsair xms3 ram 1600mhz
Corsair 600t

I used the power supply wattage calculator on newegg and it said roughly 650watts. So I want at least 750w or more to be on the safe side. Can anyone help me out by recommending some PSU's quality PSU's I mean.

Btw I live near a Frys Electronics and a Micro Center.

^^ Its a good brand, and fairly good reviews, exept for DOA reviews, which will happen to ALL computer components.

Good price to and is energy efficient.

I would buy that but I want to drive to frys or micro center because they are so close rather than pay for shipping,

thanks for the quick replys
