    Long life: warranty? (Just out of interest)

    There's nothing about the warranty in the press release, but if it's less than the three years offered on the FCs then I'd be surprised.

    PSU less than 850 watts is a waste of time and money.

    Good to know people still come out with such generalisations, what would you suggest then for a system that only draws 74.5 watts at full load ?

    The price is a bit much. About double the price of what I want to pay, $80 for a 350W is a almost like stepping back in time. They do make good PSUs though.

    Been running a 350W and 650W Gold for 3 years, no issue. My Seasonic's still have 2 years warranty left! I'd generalize not to bother buying less than Gold standard now if I'm buying another 5 year investment.

    Would love Bit Tech to do a comparison between bronze, gold, platinum. Based on UK electricity prices, average PC usage (8 hour?), and how long you would need to run the different 80 plus PSU's to make them worth the cost.

    Are gold/platinum rated PSU's just a waste of money ?
    How much extra do we pay in electricity for bronze ?
