I'm still trying to tweak my build with the best bang for my buck... pretty much like everyone else here.
I do believe that a premium PSU is critical, so I am looking at platinum grade products.
I started out with the Corsair HX750i; it got all 10s with JonnyGuru review except for value where he gave it an 8. However, his score was based on a $170 price; I got it for $95 with MIR.
Then it was suggested that I swap that PSU for an EVGA SuperNOVA P2 850W; I was able to purchase that item for $110. Was this a wise move? I know the EVGA is a quality product, but is it that much better?
So right now I own two PSUs... but I have Newegg premium, so return is not a problem. BUT...... if I can get the Corsair HXi 1000i for $140, would that be an even better swap.... or would the 1000i be too much? I will probably have a maximum of 2 GPUs in the future.
