They're not the kind of power supplies you buy when you're spending $1000 on graphics cards... These are low-mid end ones.. get real..

Anyways TT Toughpowers are very good

I beg to differ. They will power the 8800 Ultra's just fine.

Not ignorance lmfao.. Being ignorant is Vernong's saying that thermaltakes are bad. The low end TT's aren't that great but the toughpowers are great.. The Hipers efficiency is pretty bad, it has no APFC and they produce a lot less power then they are rated for. Yes they CAN power it but just cause something CAN power something doesn't mean it's a good choice. I wouldn't even use it for a lower end build because guess what, they cost like $90 for the 580w when you can get a MUCH better psu for the same money.. Corsairs usually are like $95 and while the 520 is rated lower is still produces MORE power while also being better built with more features and better efficiency.

Toughpowers are one of the best... No reason to not trust anything with them.

Hipers are another story.. Just cause a few people on a forum said that they're good doesn't mean that they are.. They're not bad sure, but nowhere near good..
