Get your orders in QUICK as they will be flying off the shelves at this price.

Great review SKYMTL, I have the non-pfc version and that is pretty decent as well. :)

You may notice that the non-PFC version did not drop in price. I have no idea why....

Price drop is coming, takes a bit to get to the retail chain. :)

I have it on pretty good authority that the non-PFC version will be phased out within the next few months. So, I don't think there will be any price drop on that.

That's what Tom said to me today (Im a Mushkin beta tester so I chat with these guys daily). However the units that are already at retailers probably wont go down unless the retailer decides to cut their margins. The next batch they order will be cheaper to buy and as a result it will go down for consumer as well.

Good stuff!! Personally, at that price if I were an etailer, I wouldn't buy any more units without PCF considering the amazing price the APFC units are going for.

Maybe it is just the retailer that I talked to that will be phasing out their purchases of the standard unit.

At that price I'm thinking that I'd probably have bought one of these instead of my 600W GameXstream.

Looks like great performance at a decent price.

You're the PSU guru around here, would you say this PSU would be more than adequate to run just about any single card system? (I say just about any, because otherwise somebody would chime in with a 10 HD system saying they had a problem.... :) ).
