    I am partial to Seasonic and Corsair HX and AX and EVGA PSUs. I'm sure everyone has their picks, but those are mine.

    Listen to Essenbe, RoadBlaster. Also, pay attention to warranty. Few offer the 10 year warranty EVGA does.

    Having reviewed a good number of power supplies I do agree with the above.......EVGA and Seasonic are top shelve and use only the best Japanese capacitors.........either will serve you nicely...

    Are you planing some earth moving changes to your system so it may require 1000+W PSU ?

    Well I plan to use a better graphics card which will require really smooth power so 1300W @ gold or Platinum should in theory use less power consumption than a 750W being Thrashed.

    Here is my latest choice as read a bad review about the Antec 1300W:

    EVGA SuperNOVA G2 1300W Modular PSU/Power Supply LN71876 - 120-G2-1300-X3 - Scan.co.uk

    Bad power supply list

    Good power supply list

    EVGA, Seasonic, SuperFlower, and Antec produces good power supply and been recommend by many PC builders. But always test the power supply before put everything because you never know that you will receive a defective power supply that the company you bought forgot to return to the manufacturer.

    You would need three high end graphics cards to take advantage of a 1000W. They run with less power now. So say you have 2 @ 200W peak each (TDP of a GTX 1080 is 180W, so this is overclocked) and an overclocked processor = 150W and the rest = 50-100 W. That is only 650W. With one card it would be 450W.

    Also, if you get too much power and operate in the low end of the PSU, it will be less efficient there than a right sized one and operate higher where it is most efficient.


    What 850W PSU do you have? Maybe money would be better spent on the graphics card.

    U just need a good brand name PSU. Typically, 600-850W Power supplies are more than enough for the average PC that's overclocked and has 2 GPUs.

    as far as brands, EVGA and corsair have been my go to ones.
