I read that it was from the wall and even put that in my post from the wall. I understand what your saying, but OCing adds some extra wattage. On top of that, maybe the OP decides to upgrade to two 590s, or 680s down the road. That Seasonic PSU is going to be good for many YEARS and I always believe it's best that if affordable, to buy a little more than you need in case you get deep pockets and want more. Saves you from a future upgrade later. That's just from my personal experience, but ultimately is the OPs decision.
Anyway, my vote is the X-750 Seasonic. If you had some time to wait a bit, the X-850 goes down under 200 sometimes like around 189 I think I've seen it for. The corsair 850 unit is no slouch either though. Can't go wrong with Seasonic or corsair considering they are essentially the same units with logos swapped. I believe the particular AX850 you speak of is the logo swap version of the seasonic X-850 so save yourself some bucks if you really want the 850. Seasonic has just never done me wrong so I buy those. Corsair has burned me on RAM before so I'm not a diehard fan of them like I was.Edited by Strobe - 7/18/11 at 6:49pm
