what just happened? - Page 4

post #31 of 50
I should clarify about my earlier dismissal of the X-connect. I thought it was the original x-connect which were so horrible they were giving them away. The V-series is better but not great and the X-Pro, X-Infinity and X3 are made by Andyson which makes them very good. I'm not sure of the quality of the X2 series.

I would go with the recommended Corsair 550 watt power supply, that's a steal of a price for that unit.

Which Ultra were you looking at? Both Antecs and the Enhance are what you should probably choose from.

edit- The Corsair still is the best though.

If you have your heart set on a modular, the XVS you linked and this X-Finity are both average. You will be giving up some quality and efficiency for the modular cabling. As long as you don't plan on going SLI or getting a more demanding video card you should be fine.

edit- Nevermind the X-finity, it isn't modular...

hmm thanks shij think i will follow your first recommendation and get the corsair. rebates suck but for another $10 more i can get a more overhead and stability. and the efficiency grips me too. thanks fellas reps coming...

No problem, I wish good PSUs were cheaper though. A good modular will be $100 or so.

You won't find many people that agree with you unless they are ultra employees like you.

Oh definitely not. Raidmax and Rosewill are far from the budget value brands of anything. The previous PSU you had (and the one I have now *gulp*) could be considered that.

I had a raidmax on my previous 939 build. It was a 500, and it was amazing. Read the newegg customer reviews. I think the PSU with the most 5/5 ratings is one I gave you a link to.
