Best PSU For Around $125

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a more powerful PSU, and am willing to spend around $125 on it. My only concern is that I would like it to be fully modular and over 750 Watts. So if any of you PSU experts can suggest me one, that would be great. I was thinking of the TX/HX 750, but not sure.

Neither the HX nor TX 750 are fully modular. I don't think you'll find a fully modular 750watt for that price, the x750 and ax750 and Hale90 are fully modular but run more like $150 (the x750 was on sale for $129 but I think that's over now).

If you don't mind partly modular the HX750 is definitely high quality and has a minimum of cables. The Toughpower XT 775 is not as good but it's cheaper and also has a minimum of hardwired cables and still quality. The truepower new is also partly modular, very good quality and about $130 without any MIR, it has too many hardwired cables though.

I think $125, >750W and fully modular isn't going to happen, unless you find a special deal on a unit that's normally over $125. There aren't that many fully modular units anyway.
I can suggest a good 750W unit that's fully modular for $130: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256059

What are you going to be running? You likely don't need a 750w+.

What a weird company, I've never seen a fully modular unit with promo pics that show all the cables plugged in, rather than displayed seperate from the unit. I almost thought that was mislabelled as modular at first lol.

That's a pretty good deal for a fully modular unit right there.

A tad over your budget. One Shub mentioned wouldn't be a bad option either.

I just saw Newegg has the AX850 for $150. I know it's $11 outside your price range, but it's a really nice PSU.

Edit: I should add $150 AR and code.

I got my AX750 almost brand new from someone on EVGA for less than your budget and it's fully modular PSU. I think if you're looking around, you could find some good deals and i'd definitely recommend you the Corsair AX series, fully modular, flat cables, solid performance smile.gif.
