Over the last couple of weeks, I have been avidly looking at PSU's to figure out which one would be the best for my setup, as well as factoring in performace to cost. I'm now down to 3 PSU's that I think will fit the bill. They are listed as followed.
  • Antec TruePower New 750W
  • Ultra LSX 750W
  • Corsair TX-750 V2

I've looked at multiple thorough reviews for each of these PSU's, including the Ultra LSX 750W, which seems not to be nearly as popular because of Ultra's reputation with there past PSU's. To what I have gathered, Ultra has finally stepped up there game and are making quality PSU's that live up to there 80+ Bronze Certified label, as It seems to compare well with the Antec and Corsair PSU I listed. I was just looking to get some input as to which one is truly better based on price to performance and which one I should go with. It's pretty much the last piece of my new build. My XFX Radeon HD 6850 Dual Fan should arrive tomorrow, and I'm hoping my current PSU (Antec EarthWatts 500W) will be able to run my setup somewhat well until I can get my new PSU. Any help is much appreciated, thanks!


P.S. - Feel free to recommend other PSU's if you feel that I could get a better PSU for the price. My budget is $110, but lower is always better.

Without a doubt, get the Corsair. Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling are other great PSU's.

Corsair is what I would go with.

The 500W you have now is plenty to run that system. More than enough.

750W is beyond overkill.

Thanks for the speedy responses guys! Atm, I'm leaning towards the Corsair and the Antec, but I really wanted to get some feedback on the Ultra LSX 750. There are a few good reviews out there, but there's almost no personal reviews/knowledge on them.

I'm going to be adding another 6850 down the road sooner than later and I also plan on doing some serious overclocking, so I'm just preparing for the future and that comfort space is always nice to have.

I have the Corsair TX750 (not V2) and the Antec TP-New 750-

Both are great psu's, the Antec is modular which is a plus if you have a case with a side window, or think you might in the future-

I wouldn't buy a power supply without first seeing what JohnnyGuru
has to say about it. Here is the Corsair TX 750 review:

Yeah I've read a lot of JonnyGuru's reviews for the PSU's I researched and he sure does a great job. Very thorough. His review of the Corsair TX 750 V2 actually made me serious about buying it lol. At this point, it looks like i'll most likely go with either the Antec or the Corsair. I was just really hoping to get some feedback on the Ultra LSX 750 because it's quite a bit cheaper and 'looks' to be comparable to the other PSU's i listed. I myself feel more prone to getting the Antec or Corsair because of there reputation, but the Ultra Lifetime Warranty has kept that PSU drilled in my head at the same time.
