Corsair TX750 (/750TX) vs BFG ES-800

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
After christmas I'm planning on making a few upgrades. These upgrades ended up getting to the point where I decided I should grab another PSU, case, and DVD drive and sell off my current machine (minus the q6600, which I would put my e4500 instead of) to a friend.

So I'm currently trying to decide which power supply to get. I've decided to get something a bit bigger that I won't need for a while (though I'm having the option of crossfire 4870s, along with a few other things and a large overclock open).

Both the 750TX and the ES800 are about the same price. I've heard good things about both of them for the most part. There are a bunch of bad reviews on newegg for the es800, more than the 750tx for sure, but this doesn't usually mean too much to me. It also seems that the ES800 is quieter than the TX750, although marginally.

Anyways, what would you guys recommend? Both seem pretty nice and I'm having a hard time choosing

Thanks for your time.

get the bfg 800. It has a nicer "chrome like" finish. Best working psu I've ever bought.

I would get the Corsair TX750. It is more than enough for corssfire 4870s.
or you could get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341011 . It's a great power supply. It's very stable, too. I'm using it in my sig rig, but I got the black version( I don't like red).

Damn! That's about 50% of the usual price for that! For the next two weeks, that shall be the best powersupply for the money.

If they were all similarly priced I would say go with the BFG. It is a better unit than either the Silencer or the Corsair. But for $70 the red Silencer is hard to pass up. Just last week the BFG was going for $70 and would have been easily the best choice. It hard to say that the BFG is worth $20 more than the Silencer but it is a close call. The BFG is more quiet, has better regulation and efficiency than the other two. The BFG and Corsair both have a little problem in ripple suppression but nothing to be worried about. The Corsair has the longest cables out of the three if that was a concern. Warranties between the three are also similar. You would be happy with any of them.

3 sylabols - Canada

No $70 PSUs for me. From what I've read that "Silencer" can get fairly loud under high loads as well. This isn't too important because high loads will probably (for the most part) mean I'm gaming and have speakers or headphones on. But for other cases it would be nice to have as much silence as possible.

Here in Canada it will be around $20 difference between the PC P&C and the Corsair/BFG, which is something I wouldn't mind paying.

Seems to be pretty mixed opinions between the BFG and the Corsair so far
