NewEgg has a 20% discount price of $89.99 on the EVGA 750 GQ 210-GQ-0750-V1 80+ GOLD 750W Semi Modular EVGA ECO Mode power supply. Would your recommendation be for me to purchase this to replace my High Power HPL-800BR-F14S or should I continue using the High Power model?

If necessary, I will find the money to purchase the EVGA model, but only if it is necessary!

Thanks in advance,
David

Other than efficiency and modularity, your High Power is probably better. Not worth it.

As Jon said, I would keep the High Power unit. The EVGA isn't anything awful but in comparison to what you have it's not a worthy upgrade as it shouldn't be terribly quieter, and all you would relatively gain is modularity.

Save your money for more worthwhile system upgrades. That unit is going to be able to handle any combination of single CPU and GPU that you throw at it and should be able to handle just about any 1 CPU 2 GPU setup you would be able to put in it.

Thanks. I have only a single graphics card and a single i5 CPU. I hope my suggesting the EVGA unit did not influence you advice. I was also considering Seasonic or Corsair but am happy to stay with the High Power if that is your advice.

Doesn't matter what the other unit was. It's the same circumstance.

Another PSU may offer more User QoL features like lighting control, fan speed control, the option to switch between Single or Multi Rail. None of that stuff would effect system stability and unless you REALLY want some of those features there is no reason to swap out your unit.
