Want some opinions about this PSU: Silverstone

good brand, good unit, but that shipping cost is horrendous. for one or two bucks more after rebates and shipping, this is a much better option for its higher efficiency.

Thanks for quick reply Hii. I'm looking to replace a OCZ psu that I'm running. The cables are too short. So I'm trying to get away from OCZ brand.

righty. well then go for the one you linked. other gold efficiency units were 20 bucks more expensive for the same wattage.

EDIT: or you can buy extension cables if you only have a problem with one or two cables. wouldnt be more than 3 bucks, and gold efficiency would be worth it for that much.

I'm not sure how much you're willing to shell out for a new power supply, but i always favor SeaSonic over other brands. Here's my suggested power supply: SeaSonic 850W.

Here's a good review.

Seasonic is a good psu. I went with the silverstone. It is going in a i5 rig. Running 2 gtx 670's.

Offtopic:

Looks like the GTX Titan will be available on Feb 25th in stores. I'm gonna go Tri fire in a build with 3 of them.

seasonic is defiintely a good brand. i have one of their platinum efficiency 1000 watt units, and couldnt be happier.

of course, it doesnt matter because you have sone with the silverstone, but w/e.

the price is a bit expensive but that unit, the one you linked, is good. My first machine was powered up by Silverstone... I just couldn't use it for my new rig because it was just 650 watts. I needed 800W, at least. It still works to this day since I assembled by first gaming rig 4 years ago. It's durable, really.
