    It's starting to sound like 10 years is a good time to retire my SG-850 before it has an issue (based on the outright just suggestions for a new supply).

    The suggestion of the AX1600i (regardless...

    Is it new PSU time for a new build?

    About 10 years ago I came across the site and it got me very happy with a power supply purchase. I have an Antec SG-850 that has served me well for over 10 years now.

    I am looking at doing a bit...

    Visiontek is usually lifetime while Diamond I think is 1 or 2 years. So if there's no retail package differences or major price difference, then I'd go with the Visiontek.

    Maybe I should've bitten on your $200 offer. I'm at like 85% to buying that SG850. That last 15% is 10% that maybe I should go for the HX1000 since it's the same price AR for 150W more, and another...
