My System Specs

Default

Hmm, the SR-2 reviews I've looked at seem flawless, and EVGA... everything seems to be of quality.

And more to that point, can you guys comment on these brands? So I have more to go on. Particularly the ones in the 2nd category.

I heard something concerning regarding 1500w power supplies. That with a US outlet, 1500w power supplies can somehow hurt it, or the wiring in your house? Is this true? Also, how do you know if your power supply will support your motherboard? I've heard you need some sort of special connectors for the SR-2?

Oh, and what cords that will not come with the power supply, mobo, etc I will need to buy?

Computer Brands I believe are quality

G Skill
Silverstone (from what I've heard, although no experience on this one)
Corsair
Patriot
nVidia
EVGA
Intel - (have had their processors for years, not one failed... ever)
ASUS
Seagate
Western Digital
MSI (mostly because of my MSI Force 1761 ...)
Gigabyte (The old i7 960 I mentioned uses a Gigabyte Mobo and has worked out fine)
LG
Lite-On
NZXT (heard their stuff was good, most reviews of everything they make are positive)
Razer
Bigfoot Networks

Computer Brands I do not know enough about to classify

Thermaltake
Cooler Master (although with the Cosmos II I just bought we'll see)
Kingston
Mushkin
Prolimachtech
Noctua (again, i'll see when I get the CPU coolers)
Thermalright
Zalman
Xigmatek
Crucial (heard their SSDs are spectacular)
Creative
HT Omega
ADATA (although I have a really nice USB 3.0 from them ...)
Hitatchi (I want one of their 4TB HDDs, eventually)
Lian Li
Enermax
XFX
PNY
Seasonic
Lepa
Kingwin
In-Win
Antec
Nec
Viewsonic
Rosewill

Brands I distrust, know are of crappy quality, or otherwise have bad reviews

AMD (and by extension ATi)
OCZ (lots of SSD and power supply failures according to lots of reviews)
Sony (at least with computer components)
