    A PSU is the last thing you want to save money on in a computer build. It is the heart of your system and the cheaper ones do not have the quality or safety features of the better brands.

    Here are some web sites to review and for the OEM versions, who actually makes them. Johnny Guru's site is probably the best reviews around, although he doesn't do it any longer. He was hired by Corsair. But his reviews are still relevant.

    Wise advice ... When configuring a Computer build yes you can save a bit (eg) go i5 instead of i7, go 6GB RAM instead of 8GB but your PSU is the one to spend as much as you can on and a branded name :)

    They might have made the EVGA PSU's and they did a really great job making this model. One of the sites you recommend JonnyGuru gave it a 9.9 rating. His review link below Steve.

    I agree Mike. I own a 1050W EVGA PSU, 2 Corsair HX750's, a Corsair AX 1200i and a Seasonic 1050 X Series. They are all excellent PSUs. EVGA are very good Power Supplies or I wouldn't have bought one.

    Alright, I'll return the V1000 and get the GQ. I haven't opened the box yet as I'm waiting for my GPU to come in.
