He was telling you who made them and what design/platform it is based off of internally.

The Cooler Master V850 is made by Seasonic and is based on their KM3 platform (like the Seasonic X 850 KM3).

While the XFX Pro 850w could be a few things... If it's the Pro Series Black Edition (the gold fully modular unit), it also a KM3 design but with a lower quality fan. Both are quality high-end units; however the Cooler Master is better price.

If it's the non-modular and modular bronze units 650w+ are also made by Seasonic and is based on the S12II SS-***AT and M12II SS-***AM units.

Thanks for outlining that for me. It's a Pro 850W Bronze. Part modular, with the cables included to add to the PSU as required, as well as having 'fixed' cables.

Almost every PSU you can buy is not made by the brand that sells it but by a OEM

Finding out just what OEM and platform is used is the most important information you need

Becasue if you dont look out even major brands has something not very good or outright trash

Well they all seem to like the PSU, so I guess I'm happy. Also I'm having second thoughts about the 690. Unless I can obtain it for a VERY good price, I think I'll just wait for the other Nvidia GPU's to come out later this year and see how that affects the price of the 780. I think even though it only three gig and has two thouand-three hundred cores, it's the technological advances that I think appeal more......

Edit:

I have bought a Zotac GTX 780 (reference version).
