Default Need help for choosing 750W PSU

Hey Guys,

I already have all the other parts for my computer and all I need is a 750W PSU. I would greatly appreciate your advice on the good quality and durable brands and models, also I would like this to last as I am probably not going to upgrade anytime soon.

Many thanks
Steve

What is your budget? Anything from Corsair, Seasonic, XFX or Antec would be good. Check out the Corsair AX750, really good psu.

I am willing to spend around $200 for this, also still deciding on whether to go for 850W or 750W as I do want to use this PSU for future builds.

Get a Corsair AX750, its the best on the market 80+gold, hands down. I got a Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 750($120 shipped!!!), which is almost as good at a steal price thats why I didnt get the corsair. I hear great things about the Kingwin LZP-750 for $199, this is 80+ platinum and a single rail.

I've got the 1K version, and I'm not sure if this is the same platform but I'd give the 850W XFX a look. Fully modular, and $130 w/ MIR, $150 if you ignore the MIR......

XFX is a great PSU I thnkits made by seasonic and rebranded, seasonic is tops and much more expensive....but this is only 80+ silver, if this doesnt matter, it's a great choice...and good looking too. Usually gold level will not only give better efficiency but as a result, it can be higher quality..not in all cases.
