If it still bothers you, then get one of these:

Agreed... or make your own.

Thanks for everyones input on this.

Bearing in mind I'm from Australia so some of the options pointed out aren't available in stores here or eligible for shipping to Australia.

MSI recommends having both EPS connected so I'm definitely doing that.

I was going to change my mind to the xfx 850W black edition but Amazon had already charged my card for the gtx 780 and ax860 and I don't want to delay my order and stuff around with refunds/currency conversion fees etc.

So im sticking with ax860.

Just fyi though im saving a fair bit buying through amazon compared to buying locally. Here a gtx 780 is equivalent to USD $750 and an ax860 is USD $231. And i'd still have to pay shipping on top of that. Plus I had $80 worth of free amazon credits.

I'll definitely take all your advice into consideration next time i have to buy a psu.

Thanks guys!thumb.gif

hey, so you are buying your card and PSU from amazon.com?? So they will ship outside the US?? i am asking because every time i look for something such as computer parts i always see this "Shipping: Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S."

Just leave 1 EPS12v disconnected. It's harder to manage cables if there is a second EPS12V

Yep they sure do ship outside the US. Just not everything is eligible so you have to filter it for international shipping and "Amazon Global Eligible". You can't get every product though. Example is I wanted EVGA 780's but could only get Gigabyte. And not all the psu's being suggested were available to me.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep this in mind. I had both connectors hooked up from the other psu so i know it's manageable in my case. Cheers. thumb.gif
