At $80, the EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GA is a terrific deal. It achieves high enough overall performance, has tight load regulation and decent ripple suppression and isn't noisy under normal conditions. Moreover, it utilizes a fully modular cable design, and its build quality is solid. We found Japanese caps everywhere, along with a quality double ball-bearing fan, and this is why EVGA supports this platform with a hefty, ten-year warranty. The significant downsides are the lower-than-17 ms hold-up time and the not correctly set protection features.

To retain compatibility with the newer generation GPUs, which deliver high power spikes, EVGA looks to have asked Andyson to heavily modify the protection features of the 750 GA, rendering them useless. You know that something is way off when you need to apply more than 1200W of load to a 750W PSU to force it to shut down. The unit might have survived our tests, but its lifespan will be greatly reduced with repetitive overloads like the aforementioned. If you want to spend more, you could also take a look at the Corsair RM750x or the EVGA 750 G6
