From reading around on the forums you seem to be regarded as one of the authorities on power supplies.

if you owned this computer which power supply would you consider? all are similarity prices except for the last unit, which is plat. certified

or something entirely different?

EVGA G2 if you wanna save some cash, HCP Platinum if you want the best,.
Can you guess which I chose? laughingsmiley.gif

Honestly though for the average gamer/enthusiast the price difference is not really worth it tbh, but it is the bestest sooo applaud.gif

yes I know bestest is not a word.

The Antec is the best one of those but it also the one that costs the most, i think its overpriced but if you dont mind the price its still the best.
Best bang for buck goes to the EVGA SuperNova G2.

the antec is about mid way down the list for ripple suppression and the G2 about mid way down the list for voltage regulation. how important is one over the other?

the toughpower unit rates high in both of the test and can be had for the same price as the g2. however youve given second place to the cooler master V which places low in both categories.

it seems that its going to be between the G2, the Toughpower, and the Seasonic, however I can see 2 different toughpower units, is there much of a difference? is one unit better than the other?

0,5% or less better voltage regulation does not matter all that much.
And avoid those thermaltake units.

The G2 is the one that give you the most for the amount of money you pay.

alright then, soo its decided.

the G2, which i can get for about $150 CAD after rebate, unless i feel like spending an additional 75$ for the plat. antec (which i likely wont as you have told me in about 4 posts to get the G2)

Thank you for the help.
