I mean at best it's marginally better and at worse they are essentially the same.

- the 12v regular was almost identical (okay, the seasonic's change was 0.01% better =/)
-the 3.3v adn 5v regulation was better on the seasonic, but really, who cares?
-the kingwin's ripple was less than half the seasonic's
-the kingwin was more efficient (i think at least 1% more in every test)
-the kingwin scored better in the transient spike tests
-the kingwin is 30 bucks cheaper @ newegg

sounds like a wasting to me, unless you really value minor rail regulation

as for what they said, overall it maybe had the best regulation, but the HCP-1200 still raped it in 12v regulation, its just that the minor rail regulations were better. id rather take better 12v regulation than better minor rail regulation

I'm not arguing anything you said. With all it taken together though I still see the differences between the two as extremely small.

The only thing I'm really willing to concede is the price tag and I totally get that being a deciding factor for people. At any rate I'll never buy a 1000 watt PSU in my life I'm not sure why I keep getting in this argument. In all honestly unless the connectors change I could see myself using this one for the next..10 years? I don't know as long as it lasts me.

Edit: Sorry OP. A corsair unit would be great choice to by the way. They are basically all quality. Find a unit in your price range and check jonnyguru to make sure it's a good one and your basically set.

25mv v 50mv ripple seems a pretty decent gap to me. granted neither are going to affect performance, but i still wouldnt call it an extremely small difference. same with the efficiency, 1% difference is alot if you consider that its only 2% between 80plus tiers. all in all, i feel the biggest thing the kingwin has over the seasonic is its price - 30 bucks different and much cheaper shipping. you are right, in practical terms theres really no difference between the units, but 30-40 bucks is something that can be felt

Checked acouple other threads and I think the general idea is 850 will be enough for 7xxx gpu's.. any ideas on kepler cards?

Seasonic is actually the OEM for a lot of the high end Corsair PSU's, I believe the ones from the AX series.

About the power consumption of next gen video cards, the last I checked, the HD 7000 series, specifically the HD 7970, actually consumes less power than the GTX 580 (3GB version from EVGA though, not the Classified one though).
