I'm in the market for a new PSU as I'm upgrading my computer very soon, so I took a look at Silverstone, mainly because I'd try to do something which isn't purely mainstream (OCZ, Antec, FSP, etc.).<br><br>
Do you guys know how the Silverstone PSUs is? If they aren't recommend something else, but I guess I'm not going to die by buying an OCZ (I actually was about to write OCN <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">) or such.

Silverstone *does* belong in the list of reputable and reliable brands....<br><br>
Remember CyberDruid's Crunch project? He has two S<a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817163111" target="_blank">ILVERSTONE SST-ST56ZF's</a>to power four motherboards and Pentium D805's (folding, so no real high end video cards).<br><br>
Personally, I would put them at the same level as FSP, slighly above Antec, and OCZ (Except of course GameXStream, which is built by FSP...)<br><br>
How much are you planning to spend?

Well, almost infinite, but within resonable limits <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I realize you're in Denmark, but look for this:<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817256006" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256006</a>

And what do you plan to hang on it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Namrac: that one is a beast!<br><br>
If you don't need that much power, pick the ST56ZF I linked in my previous post. 560W and a single 12V rail of 38A. Plenty for a mid-range rig.

I just picked a high end one, since the G80 takes a power supply and a half by itself, I though he should be prepared. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br><br>
You could also look at the PC P&C Silencer 750W.

nVidia's recommendation for an 8800GTX is 450W (800W in SLI). <br />
<br />
I've seen revies that an entire rig with an 8800GTX draws less than 300W under full load. I think the hype about high power draw was a bit over the top, esp. single card use.

Antec, Enermax, Seasonic, Silverstone, and Tagan are the only ones I would trust.

Can't go far wrong with Tagen - Still waiting for my 430W to die after 6 months of 7800GTX SLi use and OCing =)<br />

Okay. I'll just take an Antec or a Silverstone, then?
