so im looking at getting a new psu for my computer. my current computer is a non modular 450w antec.
i want a more powerful psu so i can upgrade more freely in the future and not have to worry about the powersupply quiting on me
what im looking for in a psu:
1. at least 80+ silver certified
2. 800w or more
3. preferably fully modular but partially modular will do
4. under $200
any suggestions are appreciated some i have been currently looking at include:
You can't go wrong with SeaSonic, a very solid brand. If you would like more options you could check out some of the corsair PSU's like this one:
It's a bit more pricy compared to the ones you selected but then again its all about how much you are willing to spend on quality parts. :D
yah, i do want good quality but i also dont want to spend over $175 for 850w, cuz i think somehow i will convince myself down the road a few years to get a 1000+ watt psu
actualyl now thinking i would be fine with spending $200.
NEW BUDGET: $200
Comparing Corsair AX850 to the SeaSonic X-850 they seem identical. Hell, it's probably safe to say Seasonic made that psu and Corsair slapped on a different enclosure/fan. I would just go with the Seasonic here since it's cheaper.
You're probably right, I guess then you'd be better off getting the SeaSonic :D
yah the seasonic does look like the best choice so far
this psu is on sale for $179 its:
1300w (which is very future proof)
80+ gold certified
and it has quite a few good reviews
Rosewill Lightning 1300
should i consider getting this over the seasonic
