    @Moyo2k (+ contributors)

    I just wanted to thank you for this list!

    I had been hovering between splurging on the Antec Truepower 750w or going for the more budget-realistic (but less-good) OCZ ModXstream 700w. This list brought the XFX Black Edition 750W to my attention and it seems to be a damn good PSU at a price I could (kinda) afford.
    (also, I found it on ebuyer for £83.. yay for Google Shopping!)

    Shouldn't this be updated a bit? Seems a tad old, is Moyo2k still updating it and if not should someone not take over the reigns?

    What's the best PSU to pick up for ~£80.
    My system will be i5 2500k which will be overclocked and probably only 1 GPU, maybe a 5850 or 6950. Depending on what I can get.

    I dont agree too much with the list at the first post of this thread, why you think enermax is nearly always the best ?, enermax as far as I am aware offer only multiple +12 V. rails.

    I would nominate the Corsair TX750 V2 for budget 701-800w category. It's £83 on Amazon UK at the moment.

    I just bought the XFX Black edition 750W from the list and absolutely love it.

    I would cetainly nominate the XFX 850w Black edition PSU for the budget 801-900w category- it's £95 on Amazon UK and is made by Seasonic (please correct me if I'm wrong).
    Take a look at this review among others, they're very positive.

    I am sure if you look hard enough on Amazon you can find it at a far better price than 95. I have seen many items on my affiliate site marked way down from most other sites. Example my site has a listing for a Corsair CMPSU-850TX 850-Watt TX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply for as low as 119 canadian. Just have to do some searching.

    not heard good things about OCZ PSUs but I definitely won't paint them all with the same brush, despite that tbh I think there are better 700W PSUs around that same price

    sums up why the list exists, no point spending £600+ on your rig then trying to save on a PSU that will eventually murder it all

    What do you guys think about High Current Pro HCP-750 750W TX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply. I'l be buying that in a couple of days to power up my Lightning Xtreme Edition GeForce GTX 580.
