Default New Corsair HX Models?

I know it was "leaked" with a picture of the 750W, so it looks like Canada Computers has them listed a bit early...

Canada Computers - Power Supplies > Modular Gaming PSUs : Corsair HX Series CMPSU-750HX 750W ATX EPS12V Power Supply.

Canada Computers - Power Supplies > Modular Gaming PSUs : Corsair HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX EPS12V Power Supply.

I surely hope those aren't the proper prices since that's really damn expensive even though they are modular.

That is kinda odd...the 850W and 1KW could be had for almost the same price with a little searching.

I don't care if its modular... I care if the PSU is of good quality and is priced reasonably.

It might perform well... yes, but It FAILS in the pricing category. No one will pay 200+ for a 750 or even 850w modular PSU when there are other alternatives from other companies which COST LESS (even modular ones) and perform equally or better.

You wanna bet?

People WILL pay for those PSUs because not only of quality but build and performance.

Corsair, PC P&P, and Enermax are some of the best makers of PSUs out there.

They are some of the best yes.... but there are others out there that also sell modular psu's with equal or better build quality... and for a better price.

I know... I've looked.
I've been shopping for a power supply for about 2 weeks now.
