Default Best Power supply in either 600 watt or 700 watts

Hi all just wondering whats a good brand of power supply in either 600 or 700 at the moment im using the GameXstream 600 watt power supply and im not really happy with it

Id like ones that you have to hook up the cable to the power supply so its better cable management and also recomendations would be awesome. So any recommendations would be awesome under 100- 150 dollars cheers.

I would second that, I have had an 620HX for about a year now and it has been the best PSU I have owned.

Here is another the one I have that I'm sure a lot of people will recommend, the Corsair HX620: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...acture=CORSAIR


Of course there is always the Silverstone Zeus 1200W But that is a little bit more expensive.

Edit: Tried to post this before Jmac mentioned the Corsair but damn inter webs at work just don't like to go faster than a crippled snail.

Yup, don't know what the heck is wrong with it. Sometimes it just stalls on this site. Had to completely shut down IE and bring it back before it seemed to work. Damn IE.

I fourth the HX620. I bought one this week-end, scheduled to arrive tomorrow. It's replacing a StealthXstream 600W.
