Alas the Corsair CX750 is only rated 7.1 on jonnyguru.. Excellent Ripple & voltage control but some quality & heat issues it seems..

The Current XFX PSU, a 9.0 on jonnyguru.. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=426

Actually very good choice to retain the GPU.. see how it holds its own in competition with others..

Hope this helps.. Ciao..
