Oh, well we're talking about PSUs that are a billion times better than that thing. So, let's say that we could look into the future and find out that your power consumption were to never exceed 550W no matter what you did (Furmark + Prime95, etc. nothing could top 550W). That means that you could get the 650W G2 and never have any problems whatsoever.

 

That's just an example. Take any power consumption figure you want and reword what I said. Like, if your power consumption were to never exceed 650W, then a PSU like the 750W G2 would be all you'd ever need. So on and so forth.

 

It doesn't have to be a super high-end top-of-the-line better-than-the-rest type of PSU though. It's just that current prices are making other PSUs just not worth looking at, such as the XFX XTR Series. That's an improved and fully modular SeaSonic G Series which is a very good series of PSUs, but EVGA's prices on their G2s just makes the XTR series not worth looking at. So I'm saying that if it weren't for EVGA, then I'd be recommending something else, like an XFX XTR - which is a very good PSU. EVGA's G2s are probably their biggest loss leader, and we reap the benefits.

 

Just in case this keeps going, you should probably edit your original post to mention that you only want to buy from Amazon.co.uk because you'll be able to get next day shipping thanks to your Prime membership.

You're welcome! I know that whatever PSU you end up with, it'll be a huge upgrade from anything you've ever had - especially because we're talking about an EVGA G2 being the most likely candidate here.

If the Corsair RMx is cheaper get one of those instead as its also a tiny better then the EVGA SuperNova G2.
Pricing on those are kind of strange as its way cheaper then the G2 in some places but the G2 is way cheaper in others.

The brand name on the box or on the PSU is meaningless. All that matters is what's on the inside. He is just saying that the unit that Corsair used to create the RMx Series is a little bit superior to the G2. This isn't about Corsair vs. EVGA, it's about one particular unit vs. another.

 

Judging a PSU by its brand name is almost like judging a person based on the way they look, or based on the color of their skin, or based on what they're wearing, or based on their name, or based on where they live. It's like the old saying, "don't judge a book by its cover".

Good grief. I'm just trying to make my point as clear as possible. I didn't realize you were that sensitive. I'm sorry that what I was really trying to say was lost because all you saw was racism.

 

Did you get what I was trying to say? I mean, that's all that really matters here. If you want to accuse me of being racist or something just because of what I posted here, then you should take that accusation back of me taking things too far because I could just as easily accuse you of the same thing with that accusation.

 

So no, that was not racism in the least bit. If you want a good example of racism, then I can certainly give it to you.

 

ANYWAY, again, this is not about one BRAND vs. another BRAND. This is about what's on THE INSIDE, as I thought I made extremely clear already.

 

I guess what pisses me off here is, instead of learning from what I tried to teach you and then TELLING me that you learned something (and maybe even verbally thanking me for it), you decided to negatively judge what I posted with an insult. It's like, I didn't put that out there for you to tell me what your opinion is of it. I put it out there to teach you something here. Like I said, all you saw was racism, and that just doesn't sit well with me because now it feels like you're saying I'm a racist when all I was trying to do was teach you something valuable about power supplies.

I wasn't saying you where being racist man hahahahaha really I get everything you've said I'm basically saying I admire you enthusiasm and how your into this thing your information has been useful but in addition my opinion which doesn't actually matter is just calm down a little bit with the explanations especially the last one that was all you actuall made me laugh mate, all I ever wanted was a basic get a G2 there better in my opinion or get a rmx you get the idea

Calm down? You're way off base. lol Omg dude.

 

What you wanted to learn isn't as simple as you want it to be. You are still using brand names to judge PSUs even though I thought we made it absolutely clear that it's not ABOUT brand names. That's why I posted what I posted. I felt that I needed to do everything I could to get you out of that mindset.
