It is indeed. If you want a high power, bang-for-the-buck PSU, with efficiency and low noise, single rail, then the Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 is the one for you.

but,if you really want to get another psu,also look at the newegg specials, they have the lazer gold around 100 bucks sometimes.

That still doesn't put you to the need of a 1kW power supply. At best you will need/should be running a 850W power supply. Once you get into the 4 digit power supplies you are really paying a premium (even more so if you go modular) and if you are never going to stress your power supply to need it you're essentially burning a hole in your wallet.
