    About the only complaints I hear about Corsair's lineup are "Why is there no HX750?" and "Why don't they have something in the 850W range, preferably modular?" If you guys could put out a hx750/800 that is priced better than the DA750 I think you would have a winner. That segment is awfully sparse when you need an affordable ~750W modular PSU that can handle an OCed quad and 2 4870/gtx260.

    We're not going backwards, that's for sure. We just want to get an idea of the best way to go forwards.

    If you want to make advancements it makes sense to find out what people really want.

    I just want to add i think the CX400 was a good idea, even the novice builders now are beginning to place more value on the PSU nowdays but i felt that the VX450 was still not cheap enough to be in an entry level gaming build.

    Though as you mention, branding quality PSUs with low wattage (such as 400W even though it is) seems to hurt it as less knowledgeable buyers look for wattage ratings since product box specifications for hardware is still asking for "xxx watts PSU").

    I think that if you could certify a PSU to say "HD4870" ready (or show a typical system spec the PSU can handle on the back of the box) for example it would take emphasis away from the wattage rating. But obviously i dont know the legal issues of doing such a thing.

    I just wish the CX400 had more availability here in europe: I have an old computer that needs a cheap and good PSU.

    They already have 3 units under 500W..and under $90. The market segment hole in Corsair's lineup is between 750W-1000W. Also between 650W and 1000W for modular.

    I think I would also like to see some staid cases desgined around these power supplies.
