that sounds good. AFAIK the earthwatts has no cable sleeving, so thats a no go for me (cant stand open cables). The Truepower is about $25 more expensive than the TX. All the TX reviews say its good too. Will the corsair power my system (see sig), with 2 8800GT? Also, the Coresair has a single 12v rail.

definitely not earthwatts (only max of 540W through the +12V rails)
the truepower trio and TX650W should be similar, but as many would suggest, just get the corsair TX650W

my vote is for corsair, very well built units and the cable sleeving is nice.

650W is enough to power SLI'D 8800GT plus the so called "multi rails" is not actually multi rails so ive been told on these forums.

Corsair 650W TX. I have two and like them.
post #8 of 8
I personally have and recommended the 750TX. The reason because it hosts 4 8pin PCIE connectors with 60A on 12v. It is more future proof than the rest as you can upgrade to video cards that have 8 pin connectors.
