10 year warranty?! That thing will still be under warranty when your PC is well and truly obsolete. It's kinda nice to see that the manufacturer is kind of encouraging people to re-use PSUs rather...

I was able to snap up my DPS-750CB (which is a ridiculously overbuilt dual-PCB unit) for only $50. It too is bigger than a standard ATX PSU but with standard screw-holes. It actually fits nicely in...

Ah, yes. Sorry, I got a little confused by the name of the card. For some reason, I thought Tri-X meant Tri (3-way) Xfire. I didn't realise it was just the name of that card. My bad.

That 1050W figure is from 3-way XFire. 850W would work just fine for the OP (assuming he intends to use two cards).

I guess it's possible. It bears a lot in common with this (http://hardwareinsights.com/wp/dell-h305p-01-power-supply-review/3/), though. Especially when you look at the solder side. I'm pretty...

If this (http://hardwareinsights.com/wp/dell-h750p-00-review/3/) can't be classed as a server unit, I don't know what can.

They can be OK, but I've seen some pretty horrendous blunders from them before. My first Thermaltake Evo Blue 2.0 750W had a ~5mm long component pin which was bent over and shorting on another...

Nice. I'm kinda glad you didn't go with an LG monitor. I have a 24" LED one (I can't remember the model off the top of my head), for the PC which drives my oscilloscope and webcam for reviews. It's...

Yeah, I noticed that. The 80plus report even says that the rated input is 230V.

I totally agree on the rating. If Aywun had just knocked 50W off the rating, and added another PCI-E connector,...

Ouch! Yeah, 3 or 4 connectors really should be used there. I can see those connectors melting after a year of regular gaming, although the VRM might just cook itself by that time as well. 103*C is...

Your VX550 will be fine. A good 550W PSU will handle any single-GPU setup you can throw at it with no problems at all.

Fair enough. I can tell you that a 760 will run quite happily on 450W, but if you want to upgrade, then I would recommend the Seasonic G-650.

A Seasonic G-550 would be my recommendation. 550W will cover any single-GPU setup.

The bit about killing the board is wrong too (unless you have a really cheap and nasty power supply). The worst...
