Thread Starter 
Alright guys I need your help the local supplier(which seems the be the root supplier for all of the PSUs of every freakin store in syndey australia) has ran out of the cosair PSUs could you suggest me which PSU is the next best alternative?

Thermaltake or coolermaster. I can't wait any longer for the PSU its gonna be another bloody two weeks I need the PC immediately. LOL.

Either Coolermaster RealPower Pro 750w / 850w

or

Thermaltake ToughPower 600W / 750W

suggest.

What are prices like? I would probably pick the Toughpowers over the Acbel built Real Power Pros but that could change depending on prices.

edit- Based on your specs the Toughpower 600W would be more then enough power for one 8800gt and a quad. Did they have a lower watt Cooler Master to compare prices with?

The thermaltake is a bit more expensive than the realpower but really I want to go SLi in the near future.

I personally hate Thermaltake, they make crappy cases (90%), and crappy PSU's, one of which I had actually caught fire, and burned my Mobo, they said it was my fault for putting so many things into the power supply, 750w of which I was probably using 550w. They have horrible customer service in my experience and I would just completely avoid them.

That's just my 2 cents.

If you don't plan on overclocking, the 600W Toughpower would still be good. If you do overclock, it might be pushing it with sli but it should still be able to handle it. How much more would it cost to go from the 600W to 750W Toughpower?

well the thermaltake 600W is 148

and the coolermaster doesn't have a 600W they have a 650W which is $157

*NB* Bare I am baring the shame and the embarrassment because I am in australia so expect a huge price difference even though our exchange rate is almost identical.

Thermaltake PSUs are rock solid which I can personally speak for (selling my 1200w as of today in my sig)
