These are what I am currently looking at.
CyberDruid recommended the DA but I've looked at a lot more than just the silverstone and keep coming back to these three. I also read the FAQ Stickied above so I'm leaning most towards the 850DA atm. Not too sure about the tagan with the 6 rails. Saw some posts on newegg about the turbo mode sometimes being unreliable.

Added system specs below. Thank you guys for the warm welcome. I've been reading the site regularly for a while now but just joined the forums when I decided to start building my new rig.
My budget is about $250 no more really. I don't plan to use SLI any time soon but I do want something that will last me a long time and would give me the option of upgrading down the road if I decide I want to go with a new mobo and sli or the same mobo and xfire. The PSU has to be Modular hands down.

What rig hardware do you have for this psu.
Click UserCP atop the page, click Edit System next, fill in blanks- they'll show under each of your posts. We'll be better off answering your questions after knowing your rig configuration.

My vote to DA850.

Ignoring price the 750W Silencer for PCP&C
post #9 of 18
Not really sure what kind of system would need it but I'd go with the SILVERSTONE DECATHLON DA850, I'm sure Chozart would agree.
post #10 of 18
If I had to pick DA850 > st85f > Tagan. But both Silverstones leave something desired for voltage regulation and the Tagan has questionable caps. If you are going to be spending $200+ we can probably pick out a better PSU for you.

But we need to know what system it's going to power, budget, modular/non-modular preference, planned retailer and if you mind MIR or not.
