Is this a good psu?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I try to find a good budget psu with good ratings, but it's very discouraging when you see a psu that has high ratings, but you look at the feedback and the entire first page is of people who had it doa, or it exploded their computer. It makes me wonder, if there are so many recent DOAs, who voted this psu five stars... but how does this look?

^^^this^^^

it's worth the extra $20.
You did read the reviews on the first one, it's a piece of crud.

Yeah, 650W (particularly a quality 650W) will likely be sufficient for CFed 6950s.

Presuming, of course, that you're referring to your sig rig with CFed 6950s rather than the 560 Ti.

I would say yes.
You really should mention this in the first place.

No that's not enough for 2 6950s. I would NEVER buy a brand I've never heard of and it's usually not a good thing to do. PSU is the heart of the system and it is possible that a cheapy can blow and take all your parts with it. Buy a brand that is well known and has good quality and efficient parts. This is one thing I always make sure I do when I am building a good system. Rule of thumb my friend.. most people that buy off brands end up returning them or they are defective/cheap. You will not regret waiting a little extra while to get a good power supply. Buy a Corsair; most come with long warranties such as up to 8 years.

XFX has quality power supplies which equal the quality of Corsairs in many situations since they also have the same OEM manufacturer--Seasonic.
