Recommended? Heck this looks perfect and the price is A++ from my point of view, just unsure if this is a great reliable unit, never ran with Enermax before so IDK, read a few reviews and so far the reviews said good PSU, just wanted some personal input from others so input away =]

Enermax makes some high quality stuff you wont be disappointed

The AX850 is much better. The HX1000 is just average.

I just ordered the AX850 for pretty much about the same build as yours and I think that is enough, therefore another vote for the AX850.

The AX850 = Seasonic X-850... The HX850 is better value than both though as they're extremely close in performance.

I would get the XFX Black Edition 850w though ~ if you don't mind the looks.

I might be upgrading also to a similar config as the OP, would the system really hit 700watts usage?

All this PSU stuff is really confusing me and I've read so many reviews but all gives mix results, ah so confusing_

Heck even this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817121076&Tpk=Kingwin%20lzg%20850 was given a great reviews and plus its super cheap_

but then there is that old theory of, you get what you paided for_ deciding on Power Supplies have never been so frustrating and full of headaches_

I read a few reviews and so far everyone has come up to the 700-750 so watt usage of the full system with dual GTX580 SLi mode_ so I've come to conclude that 850watt would be the safe =]

Thank you all for contributing =]

I've finally decided to go with the Seasonic X-850, it might be the same as the AX-850 but after reading reviews and major headache thinking I figure heck why not throw in a few more dollars for the Seasonic(Plus it looks cool) lol_

Welps, its on order and waiting to arrive =]
