    Default Getting the "upgrade bug" again...

    Wow...haven't been here in a while...It's been about 9 years since I built my PC, and the I5-760 GTX-660 combo is about worthless for newer games...hell, even HL2 on Steam makes it stutter from time to time...

    So...since my current PSU, Corsair HX620 bought in 2007, is practically ancient by modern standards...is "Seasonic-built" still the best, most stable choice for power supplies? I know my current Corsair is a Seasonic model...but, other than Seasonic itself, who "makes" Seasonic PSU's in the <750 watt range? (I'm an old fart and will likely never run SLI/Crossfire/wtf ever they call it nowadays)

    I saw a review on the site for Seasonic Ultra Platinum models...look good, but spendy. Worth the price?

    It's boring to recommend but safe bet is one of the superflower EVGA's. The 550W G2 received a rare 10/10 score from OW.

    Nice to know. PSU's aren't particularly sexy or exciting...until they take a crap.
