Need some advice on new PSU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I recently came across a second GTX480, and even though my Corsair 750TX is keeping up I think it is time for an upgrade. Need some help on deciding a new power supply for my sig rig.

I narrowed it down to three chioces.

First one being an Antec High Current Gamer Series 900 Watts. Its seems like a very solid unit, but I would like for my next power supply to be modular. For 133 shipped it seems like a good deal.

Second one is the NZXT HALE82 850 Watts. Also looks like a solid unit and semi modular. For 119 shipped and a 20 dollar rebate making the total 99 dollars seems like a killer deal.

Lastly is the KINGWIN Lazer 850 Watts. I know the 1000 watt unit got decent reviews so this one should be similar, plus I really like how the cables connect. At 108 shipped it also seems like a deal.

Which one would you guys choose? I have a budget of around 130 so if you guys have any other suggestions on other power supplies let me know.

Thanks

Out of those three, the NZXT easily is the best choice.

Other slightly higher-end options are XFX XXX 850W ($140 before $30 rebate) and Antec High Current Pro 850W ($135):

The XXX was formerly called the Black Edition, and is an older but higher-end design from Seasonic. The NZXT is a Seasonic with internals the same as the Corsair TX V2 and XFX Core. The Antec HCP is not nearly as good as the top-end 1200W variant, but it's a reasonably strong 80 plus gold showing by Delta.

Thanks for the input. After some more searching I decided to go with the NZXT aswell. If I read correctly it has the same internals as the Corsair TX850. If my TX750 is keeping up the NZXT wont dissapoint.

No, same internals as TX850 V2, which is a somewhat significant improvement over the original TX line, better than anything Corsair ever released until the HX750 and HX850.
