Corsairs are just fine, and are most liked by many.
The only 'better' you could possibly get would probably be SeaSonic, but I am almost sure SeaSonic makes Corsair's...

Half the people on this board uses Corasir PSUs.

but yes, i agree, kingwin/superflower have been nothing but excellent lately. the golden green platform is great, especially the little 450w unit with two pcie connectors and gold efficiency. the platinum series are great, really nice electrical performance, almost silent (silentpc measured the dbA to be at 25 @ full load, and anything less than 700-800 was absolutely silent) nice modularity, very affordable. even the fully fanless units are great performers

Why'd you ask why if you already knew? rolleyes.giflachen.gif
PS:I just ran across a thread where a guy had 21A rails ....was running a gtx 580..and wondering why
his comp was randomly shutting off eek.gif
At least his OCP is working biggrin.gif

generalising an entire brand like that is silly. the gs series will work but they are low end units. the gs, along with alot of corsair units, are made by CWT. did you really think it was wise to say such a thing? lol

half the people on this board dont know anything about power supplies, and a good chunk of them seem to have herd mentality anyway

I do agree with you, generalizing is never a bad thing, but I'm not sure if I've seen a Corsair blow up on one of us, not saying it won't, eventually.

However, realize that CXs are usually the low-end Corsair stuff, then the VX/Gamer are roughly the middle.
Sure, you can get something like a TX for roughly the same price, but as long as he is not pushing his things to the max rating, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Just my own opinion & two cents.
GS series aren't too great, per-say, but they aren't 'not good' IMO.

Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, OCZ...
Just a couple to start off with.

That's almost like saying: Seasonic, Seasonic, Seasonic, and OCZ at that wattage range.

sure it wont blow up on you, but neither will the low end ones recommended here either

i dont know about how corsair groups their power supplies, but the gs800 has decidedly mediocre performance, so id put them behind the new cx v2 psus

im just saying he could get a 650w with features such as modularity, better efficiency, quieter operation etc as well as better performance instead of getting an average 800w

And SeaSonic's tend to live it up pretty well. biggrin.gif

Only playing devil's advocate as of now, but an average 800 would leave him much room to spare, then again I guess a high end 650 will do the same.
Nevermind.

Thread Starter 
i was just going with it since it was on sale for 60 bucks here but i aint doint this low end thing again. sounds like i should just pay the extra and get a good seasonic. i want to be in the 800 to 850 range for the most part. what would be good suggestions. modular would be nice but is not required and i would like to stay under 200 dollars.

thanks again for all the help.
