Thanks for all of the input. I appreciate everyone taking the time to reply. I ended up buying the Seasonic Prime Ultra Platinum 750W.

Just go over the following list, and pick the highest PSU in the highest tier that fits your budget.

Does the Focus Plus have GPU compatibility issues?

We have discovered few issues with some high end GPU cards on market due to their huge spike under load that could trigger safeties on PSU. We have since then took action to handle this. Do you have any issue or plan to purchase our PSU? How we may help you?

Thank you for your reply.

The new version on market have been modified accordingly to handle such behavior. No issue to expect. May you have any issue, contact us any time.

Thank you.
