Need a new PSU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Antec one in my sig. I want to upgrade to one that's a little more powerful (because I might be upgrading my card to a 7950) and most importantly, fully modular. It would be nice if it had some blue LEDs, but not a must. Any ideas?

I have always used corsair or seasonic, but lately the XFX are looking good in testing and reviews and are made by seasonic,
the EVGA 1000w is a good one also, I just installed in a build for a friend.

Thank you, jlhawn.

I probably should have mentioned that I would like to stay under $100. Also, the 1000W is definitely nice, but I think 750 will be more than plenty--what do you think?

You dont need more then 550 watts for you system so 1000 watts is way overkill

Something like a Rosewill Capstone is an option if you are from the US

If you want something cheap but not crappy then a XFX Core Edition or a OCZ ZT are options
