Is this PSU any good? http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=PS-RX1200A&title=Raidmax-RX-1200AE-1200W-80-Plus-Bronze-ATX12V-EPS12V-Active-PFC-Power-Supply
I'm looking for a good 1000w+ modular PSU for my new build.

Well, aside from the fact that it couldn't do 80PLUS Gold in a million years, it's alright. It's a mid-range Andyson E-series unit.

However, it can only do 80PLUS standard. Like I said, it's an E-series unit. The unit Raidmax sent to 80PLUS was an Andyson K-series unit, which is much higher-end and more efficient. Short story shorter, Raidmax are rotten, filthy liars and this product is a bait and switch. It represents a decent value, yes, but I wouldn't recommend supporting those hosers.

It's ok.

Why are you looking at 1kW+ units? Looking to run a triple Fermi setup or something?

I'm looking at running a 1100T on CIVE with two GTX460 and it will all be on water. The psu calculator said I would need at least 890w to run everything. Is a 1kW too big?

1kW is pointless for that setup. 650w would be ample.

1kw could run 3 gtx 580's

650 watts is more then enough for 460's

Long story short, don't listen to PSU calculators. Get yourself a nice 650W and enjoy your life.

Can get a seasonic X650 for $100 right now on newegg, sweet power, plenty of it, great unit, Gold rated, and cheaper than those 1000 watts you're looking at.

I want a little wiggle room, because there is going to be 7 fans, the pump, a soundbaster x-ft titanium, a ssd, a hdd, a bluray drive, a dvd drive and maybe an e2100.

The seasonics are extremely nice, but the x-850 is a bit pricey for my budget right now.

What do you guys think about this corsair one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL042111&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL042111-_-EMC-042111-Index-_-PowerSupplies-_-17139011-L06A
You can get it for $128 right now.

Or this XFX one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207001
It matchs my color scheme great, plus I've heard its fairly good.

None of those are very power intensive. 50W total.
