Newegg only ships to the Lower 48.

I'm not sure; you'd have to ask them.

If the maximum is $140, then I'll go a hair higher and recommend the 520W Antec High Current Gamer M Series (partially modular) for $114.00:

http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1214674

However, the Cooler Master V550S is a much better PSU and it's at $129.11 right now:

http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=2160334

If it were my money and my rig, then I would go with the V550S. After all, a PSU is an investment, so make it a good one.



Newegg isn't an option because they are in New Zealand.


My first PC build 2 years ago had the Antec HCG-520. It is now in my father's PC running SLI GTX 670 and 3570K.

Is the Antech HCG-520(M) better than the Super Flower Golden Green? In what ways? Even though the Super Flower is rated with higher efficiency.
Modular would be nice in that TJ08-E case, but since it has no window, it doesn't really matter one its installed.

The ASRock is the cheapest.
As you can see, it is a huge price jump up to the Asus H87M-E board and I get like... nothing extra...

The quality of a PSU cannot be judged by its efficiency.

 

Anyway, the HCG-520M has all Japanese caps and is just a very solid unit:

First page: http://www.legitreviews.com/antec-high-current-gamer-hcg-520m-520w-power-supply-review_2017

 

However, again, the V550S is a much better unit and it is modular:

The V550S uses Teapo/Suncon cap which the Teapo are considered average and the Suncon doesn't really matter because they're used on the part of the board where there's not really any stress. The Antec HCG has Rubycon caps and the Seasonic 550RT if it's anything like the G550 it'll have Chemicon or Rubycon caps but I'm not certain on the Seasonic.

Right now at $140 I'm looking at :

Superflower Golden Green HX Series (Taiwanese???)
Antec HCG 520 (Rubycon)
CM V550S (Teapo/Suncon)
Seasonic 550RT (Chemicon/Rubycon???)

That last line for that HCG though, doesn't give me much faith for prolonged gaming periods unless loads are not crazy high:
Quote:
HCG-520M leaves mixed feelings. Electrically, the HCG-520M excels over ripple
suppression, displaying outstanding filtering and thus there is virtually no
ripple at all, but the regulation on the minor lines is weak, allowing the
lines to fluctuate by as much as 4.6% between 20% and maximum load. Thermally
and acoustically, the unit does perform great while nominally loaded but it
will not enjoy being heavily stressed for prolonged periods of time. Finally,
the efficiency of the HCG-520M is very good but not much better than what
anyone would expect from an 80Plus Bronze certified unit.

Probably not worth looking at any other units than these.

I have dismissed the HCG-520 as it is more expensive than the others at the store I am purchasing from.

The OEM Seasonic SSP-550RT is $142. It would make an ugly mess as the cables are unsleeved and I would have to use one Molex-to-PCI-E adapter.
I'm not too worried about that really but the CM V550S is cheaper ($130) and has these features and modularity.

The Superflower 500W is $97.

I don't know what to get...
What about quietness? Which of these is the best in that regard? The OEM one seems pretty good there. Do any of these turn the fans off?

I think I will go with the CM V550S.
The review on techpowerup is glowing.
And the modularity is a bonus.

Superflower if you want to save some money or CM V550s. From what I've read the older Golden Green Series uses 85c Chemicon caps for 400 Watt or higher PSUs and the really expensive Leadex uses 105c caps. I can't really find anything on the current Golden Green HX series, for features it definitely does not list 100% Japanese capacitors on the product page website so I'm sure it's not all Japanese capacitors. It could possibly use a combination of 85c Chemicons and Teapo. I think either one would be good.

780 Ti and 780 do use the same amount of power in stock form.

780 Ti is a GK110 B1 revision. Usually, the B1 revision bring better clocks and power reduction and it appears this was the case.

The 780 is also getting the B1 chips now as well so in theory, the B1 780 should run cooler than the Ti.
