    Post New PSU choices, again

    Hi all, I am having trouble deciding between 2 different PSU's for the new computer that I am building, which will be a highly OC'ed q6600 ATi based system.

    The two PSU's I am choosing from are the zeus 850 and the Ultra x3 1000w. The zeus goes for 257$ CDN, and the ultra goes for ~270. Now I want to choose the ultra but the problem is that there is only one online store in Canada that carries it, and that is Tigerdirect.ca. To be honest, I have heard nothing but bad news from these guys, and if I where to buy from there I would have to pay 22$ shipping AND the full 40$ gst+pst tax, instead of the usuall GST only tax (since I live out of the provence from them, in Quebec)

    So my question is, go for the more ultra and deal with tigerdirect and the high extra costs, or stick with the Zeus from Directcanada.ca?

    If there are any other ways to buy an Ultra X3 in Canada for a reasonable sum, please drop me a line. Also, how does the Noise of these two PSU's compare? All the reviews are a little vauge here...

    Thanks for the time!

    Xoxide ships to Canada though I didn't check to see if you have to pay all the other fees.

    Buy from Deadeyedata. I think they still have the JG special discount and talk to Jen about lowering the customs value a bit.

    I was their "dry run" to Canada and it worked out great.

    And yes, avoid TD Canada like the plague. I have had nothing but horrible luck with them over the last year.
