PSU for my rig - Page 2

post #11 of 14
No. The xfx is $50 on new egg last I checked (after rebate), reasonably modular, good quality and provides more than enough power for even most oc'd sli rigs. You definitely could spend more, but do you really need to?

If you really love the highest quality of power you can certainly go with Something awesome like the hale90 or seasonic x650 and get fully modular gold rated power, but the xfx would do you fine too.

That's a horrible analogy, seriously.
In one instance, SeaSonic makes the unit, SeaSonic sells it under their own name.
In the other instance, SeaSonic makes the same unit, and XFX or Antec sell it for less than what SeaSonic sells it for in the first instance above.
In the end you, the buyer, still end up with the same PSU, except the casing is a little bit different, and you paid less money.
