I'll second that. My HX850 has no problems with GTX480 SLI.

Whoever said your rig needs 1000w is wrong.

The HX1000 is outdated and anyone who says you need one for your system is wrong. A quality 850 is ideal. Secondly the AX is fully modular where as the HX is only semi modular.

I believe the HX has better ripple/voltage reg than the AX but the AX has better efficiency. Either is a perfectly fine unit to own although if money is an issue I'd look for a cheaper option, like the XFX others have suggested.

seasonic then comes the ax

i have both.. the ax differs slightly in some of the internals, and iirc, seasonic has slightly better ripple suppression

Nope, for all intents and purposes they are the same thing. There was a slightly revision from X-750 to X-760 and the corsair AX750 is based off on the latter of the two Seasonics. The revision is so minor it isn't worty worrying about, they are basically the same thing. The Seasonic certainly does not have better ripple suppression than the AX. The AX850 and the X-850 are identical.

One consideration people might want to use to differenciate between them is that Corsair offers 7 year warranty vs the Seasonic 5 year, but really that's hardly a reason to declare one loads better than the other.

Try enermax ? ... Or thermaltake ...

Even NZXT has it's own HALE 90 series ... gold certification ... cheap .. i think it's around 180 for the 850w one .

ripple supression is nearly identical, but i couldn't find the review
they're both excellent psus though and can't go wrong with either.. I personally would choose the ax since of the 7year warranty and all black sleeving
