Good Price? HCG 750w

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
On new egg right now:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=hcg%20750


Seems like a great price for, according to the guide and list, could SLI 580s. Am i correct in thinking this is a pretty good deal for a budget-ish rig with a higher end graphics card? (570 or 580 and looking to SLI in the future).

and the EA-750 Green on new egg is 95 dollars. that that is a older psu

the HCG series from antec are highly regarded. Looks like a great price.

They're pretty good and a good value for sure.

That Earthwatts Green 750W is not an old model (original Earthwatts 750W is kind of old) but rather a fairly new release...which IIRC is pretty much the same unit as the High Current Gamer (by Delta on the same platform I think) but probably slightly cost cut compared to the HCG. Notice that both are the same size and have the exact same rating on all of the rails. No reason to prefer the Earthwatts Green. I checked pictures of internals and they look pretty much the same there at least superficially. Also both are 80 plus bronze so I'm not sure why it was mentioned that one was 80 plus gold?

Maybe they're slightly worse than XFX Core 750W and Corsair TX V2 750W, but it's not by any amount you're going to notice. Mostly it's the +12V regulation not being as tight, but around 3% over the whole range is not a poor result.
