Choosing a PSU

I need a PSU that has to be good and reliable. I am Choosing between the Bitfenix Fury 750W and the Corsair AX760. Is there any other PSU for me. I need it between 750W and 1000W.

Please refer to this "Listings" for future reference: Toms hardware 2.0 | PCMR protips | Newegg(OLDER LIST)

Bitfenix fury is considered to be a Tier 3 while the Corsair AX is considered to be a Tier 1(Or 2). I would recommend the Corsair AX over the Bitfenix Fury.

Some other alternatives would include XFX XTR, EVGA GS, EVGA G2, .

The Evga G2.

  • what country are you in?
  • what is your budget? AFAIK those units have $50+ in between in most markets so they aren't even in the same price range normally
  • what build is this for?
  • are you actually limited to those two options for some reason?

in any case the AX 760 is one of the best ~750 watt psus on the market while the fury is clear on the other side of the spectrum. it's a rebrand of the fsp aurum gold, same as evga nex750G, and doesn't even have evga's attempts at improving on the original AFAIK. basically, you shouldn't buy the fury ever unless a) you're fearless or b) you get it for $50USD or less

Right now the corsair ax760 is 99.99 bucks on my pcpp list. That's after a 10% off, that ends on the 8th, and 30 dollar Mir. I'd still suggest the evga supernova g2 750 watt.

Is Seasonic a good brand, cuz I don't want EVGA.

Seasonic is an awesome brand. Can I ask why you don't want evga?

Had a bad history. True story. My friend bought a EVGA 1200 Supernova and caught fire. My Evga 960 Overheated and won't turn back on.

That's understandable. It would leave a bad taste in my mouth too.

That isn't normal, that was extremely bad luck and is most likely a one off unit or your ffriend caused the firefrom mishandling and evga would for sure if it was there fault. Also what do mean by overheating? It shouldn't have happened.fyi evga doesn't make the g2 series, its a rebrraned superflower leadex psu and superflower is on par with seasonic.

And I just don't like EVGA in general.
