    And yea 45A amps might not be enough for SLIng top of the line cards and top notch CPU but they doesn't mean you can't run SLI with that.

    The biggest problem here is the fact that that they generalize power consumption way too much, ofc power draw depends on what GPU, what CPU, if they are overclocked, etc.
    Sure, except it's still insane overkill, for gaming usage nothing below an I7/R7 +x80Ti/Vega class card will use 400w from the PSU, even with a 1080Ti at stock with an 8700k you won't break 400w...


    As for SLI, no one should be using SLI with anything below aN x80Ti/Titan class card...

    I'll translate

    THAT'S NOT TO SAY ALL BRANDED UNITS ARE RECOMMENDED, GIVEN THERE ARE DIFFERENT SERIES WITH DIFFERENT CARACTERISTICS AND DIFFERENT MATERIALS. BUT FOLLOWING THE STEPS ABOVE AND OPTING GIVES US AN EXTRA AMOUNT OF PEACE OF MIND WHEN SHOPPING FOR OUR PSU


    Maybe they didin't emphasize as much as they should but for me It looks convincing enough.
    He makes it sound like they are mostly good with 1-2 bad models, when in fact it's exactly the opposite, EVGA have more shit lines than good ones, and Thermaltakes are just as bad... Good with a couple bad models is like Corsair - they have their bad units like the green CX/Any VS, but they are mostly pretty good...

    As for your go-to gold rated PSU being a PRIME Gold, why? It's louder than competitors, has worse cabling than competitors, has a worse fan etc... The "performance" is good, but that's mostly irrelevant...
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    The spanish market is very weird, no PSU under 60 euro is worth it. They're all all group regulated designs plus sleeave bearing fans filled up with second tier capacitors at best, let's not talk about sub 40 euro units. Bitfenix formula and antec pro gold starts at $60 so that's what I'd go if I were on a budget

    No, VS350 is not good, but it's surely better than Urano SX 500.
    Maybe it's worth waiting for the Prime Day (16 of July), maybe there are some interesting deals.

    Woow, those are lot of suggestions, thank you guys.

    I'm thinking in waiting until Amazon Prime, that is the July 16 and 17, and see if any of the PSU that you recommend are in offer.

    If not, the Be quiet! Pure Power 10 sounds like a great deal.

    What's the point of running an 8700K with a 1080 ti at stock? That's not a realistic scenario, if you are going with high end parts chances are you are going to either overclock or add more power hungry parts.

    And gaming isn't the only think that people do Idk why most of the arguments are strictly based around gaming.

    That has nothing to do with the main topic, the thing is YOU CAN IN FACT SLI with 600-650W. 1070 ti-1080 SLI being not reasonable is a very different topic. Now, when the 1180 or 1170 comes out it will surely be better and more power efficient than a 1080 ti so people are going to SLI those cards so there's a reason why you have up to 4 power connectos on those PSUs.

    The problem here is that he didn't dive in too much, he opted to make a misleading statement saying that you can SLI without pointing out you can't SLI every single card and configuration with 650W

    As a native spanish speaker, I just don't see that adressed. What I can see is what everyone her knows for sure, not all branded units are good, but with branded units you have more chances of finding not so terrible units, and not because it's branded, because you barely find any info on non branded ones, they don't even send their units to reviewers. Maybe for other PC components like cases or peripherals it's ok to go with odd chinese brands, but this is not the case with power supplies bc it means taking unnecesary risks, just like getting a branded PSU with no reviews or internal pics is taking risks. It might be good, but It might not

    Don't take it as an article for PSU experts, take it as an article for people that know little about components. You need to be as precise as you can without too many info or technical stuff.

    Of course that doesn't mean the guide is 100% correct. I know it isn't even close to that
