The one who write this post isn´t from the USA son look at it before posting a newegg link, he can´t take that offer, and Rosewill has 5 year warranty against the 7 years of Corsair, so, which would you choose? Corsair is very solid company with bussines wordwide, I first heard of Rosewill about a month ago

Special reason to go with 1000W? if you only plan to do dual SLI / Crossfire with a 700-800w PSU you´ll be more than good to go

Corsair does not make a single one of their own units they buy from 4 other OEM´s

Corsair is overblown overhyped overrated due to the sheer amount fanboys they have

Rosewill are rebranded Super Flower units so they are sold as Super Flower outside of the US

Now, if you're really feeling the green side and you want a 680, save some cash & buy the EVGA GTX 670 FTW Sig2. There's no reason to buy a 680 with a 670 like this for sale wink.gif ...That's your 680 in disguise thumb.gif ...Uses the 680 pcb, performance is equal to a stock 680 out the box, & it has plenty of OC headroom biggrin.gif

Read 1 of few reviews for yourself... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/EVGA/GTX_670_FTW_Signature_2/1.html

Or like it's been stated, wait until the 700 series are released.
Nah...All he needs is a high quality 750w psu for Crossfire or SLI.

All of this.

Don't think it's necessary to wait unless your budget is 600-700, in which case definitely wait for GK110 on the 780. That'll blow the 680 and 7970ghz out of the water, even though it's slightly more underpowered than the Titan.

I´m not a fanboy, It´s the only Corsair thing I own and works fine for me, and I´m sure that everyone who owns one must be happy with it, and, almost none of the brands build their own PSUs, What do you mean? that if a brand doesn´t make their products is a bad brand? If things were like that, the 99% of the stuff we own is bad...

 

Just buy what you want, I bought it and works fine for me, and for what the person ask, should work fine, so, why not recomend it? And, that PSU is listed in the quality PSU list of OCN...

 

And also, you sig rig says that you own a Corsair PSU..................ohno-smiley02.gif

Almost every PSU is made by someone else your PSU is NOT made by Corsair its made by CWT

And Corsair is overpriced and overblown far too many go around saying yeah Corsair is the best is god is king and at best its illinformed at worst its fanboyisme
