And that's under FurMark, so normal power consumption while gaming or folding will be lower.

the one 8 pin is for the MoBo connection though. and I don't really know compared to other PSUs but compared to my old TX450W this thing is about 3-4 inches longer.

EDIT : and the 850W is consistent output, (alot of PSU makers mark their PSUs based on the peak they reach) it spikes to about 1KW so you would probably be fine for everything you are trying to run.

They're equally good. Unless you can find the Corsair for a cheaper price (which I doubt), go with that Seasonic. $150 CAD after rebate is a killer deal for it anyway.
