I would agree with you on the price thing, but my case psu died in a week, so i took a risk, on the 20 dollar Logysis PSU, and it paid off big.Sorry... it's been a long day and my brain is a little fried, these are good makes I would recommend along with Enermax. they are quite expensive those, and the price for.
Enermax Galaxy 1000W £234.94 (I said they would be expensive $471.00
Enermax Galaxy 850W £180.98 (I said they would be expensive) $357.00
Tagan 900W £151.99 $300.00
ANTEC Don't bother I never trust a PSU which is cheap
Personal preference at the end of the day, I have been using Enermax since 1996 and have never once had a problem with them. In that time I have upgraded my PSU twice from a 350W to a 550W PSU. The next one will probably be the Enermax Galaxy either 850W or 1000W depending on which GFX I decide to get.
Don't touch ANTEC.
The prices are my conversions I hope I am right...
Definately the gtx.if i were buying a system that cost that much i would for sure go with a 8800 gts if not a gtx. i would also look into a 680i mobo. as for power supply i would go pcp&c. and for the hard drives, if you are running 4 in a raid 0 you better have a backup drive and a good waranty.
Thats great, but if they (ENERMAX) are the end all/be all of PSUs then why arent they used in high-end commercial workstations and servers like silicone graphics clusters where power demands are consistantly high?I have been using them for years never once come across a problem with them.
tsk tsk... KC and I already reccomended themSince Saz hasn't posted...
PC Power and Cooling
I would love to hear your logic behind saying that PCP&C PSUs dont meet the standards.. what standards?Before you buy any PSU for a $3.4K rig check their replacement warantee. You NEED a PSU that will warantee replace the entire computer if the PSU fries.
Next check the efficiency. At 750 W that's a big hit on your electric bill with cost per kilowatt hour up 50% in the last 2 years.
The standard is now at ATX12V2 to support the latest Intel and SLI hardware. Some of those PC P&C were not compliant with the standard. There is a reason for standards. With a single 12V@72A rail like that one PSU had the RAPTOR spin up surge could do ugly things like artifact your video. The explanation they had at the bottom of the page was BS. Multiple rails are intended to waste power. It is called reserve/design margin.
Finally as always I recommend Antec or Enermax. But check their warantees , they may have changed.
:laugh:Don't be silly Mike. Of course you matter.
PC P&C is the best of the best. I will never use another brand PSU in any of my self-built systems. And 1KW is even better. I'll settle for my 550w Turbo Cool for now.
Mine had value, i was giving input on the psu...And you do the same.
