    Arrow looking for a reliable PSU

    Hi from Venezuela, I'm looking for a reliable PSU (because I will import the PSU from Amazon), Which it is better, between FSP Aurum PT 850W and Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W Platinum at the same price? The EVGA Supernova G2 850W is cheaper, but according to the feedbacks on Amazon, has a high rate of defective units (DOA). Thanks in advance for any help...

    Don't ever listen to Amazon or Newegg reviews for anything PSU-related.

    Why only an 850 watt PSU? you are not interested for anything else <850 watt?
    If you are looking for reliability, i would consider Corsair RMx as my 1st choice (*or RMi if you are interested for a PSU with monitor software)
    CPU:Athlon 64 FX60 (2-cores) 2,6GHz
    Mobo:Asrock 939a785g

    GPU:Asus 750 Ti 2GB
    PSU:Seasonic Platinum 660

    He's a spammer, guys, and on permanent vacation. Too many necroposts just like that one.

    Edit - unbanned. For now. Let's cut back on the necroposting, though.

    Hey. Is that a necro post? Really? It seemed like he was just piggybacking on an older thread. Is that bad? Should he have started a new thread?

    He posted the same exact thing in two old threads. That kind of thing triggers my spammer spidey senses.

    I'm not a spammer, I swear, I just need help to avoid make a mistake when buying the PSU, because would be very difficult to me change it due to the shipment cost, it not necessarily has to be of 850W, what interests me is that is efficient and above all, reliable. I posted the same question 2 times, sorry.

    So, Corsair is better brand? Btw, on amazon, the corsair RM750X is more expensive than RM850X, I don't know why? $119.99 vs $109.99, respectively...

    As i told you, it's one of the most reliable platforms.
