Are there quality 850W PSUs around $150? Or, on the other hand, will the 750W PSUs that snoball linked do the tricksy?
This is the best pst that can be had for $150

Moar choices :O Tempting ones too! None are modular like the HX850 but I spose that means I gotta think whether I value modularity at $30-40.

Antec 900W looks the most yummy. Bronze vs Silver rating... is there a big difference or is it more a formality?

Silver rated means the psu will provide you greater efficiency at typical load.

750w is enough for two GTX 570/580's.

Every time I have purchased a PSU with just as much power as I needed then I have regretted it. Thats not to say go buy a 1200w if you dont need one but an extra 100w isnt a bad idea
Having about 50-100w of headroom is alright, anymore than that becomes a waste of money. 650w could comfortably run two GTX 570's, and 750w could comfortably run two GTX 580's.

@OP Budget and do you need modularity?

Gold Class: Efficiency of atleast 87%
Silver Class: Efficiency of atleast 85%
Bronze Class: Efficiency of atleast 82%
80+ Certifield: Efficiency of atleast 80%


I bought this 750w, $150 Sparkle PSU (Modular) A+ quality there.

The bronze class Corsair munaim would work nicely and cheap after MIR.

Was able to find it on google shopping for ~210-250 +Shipping.


EDIT: Found the 920W model on Amazon for $170 new, shipped. More or less best I could find on it.
