Question Are either of these two SilverStone PSU's any good?

Hi all!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas!

Just wondering if either of these two Silverstone's are good units:

SilverStone ST50F Strider Series 500W Active PFC 80 Plus Certified Power [it is normally $79.99 now it is going for $34.99].

SILVERSTONE ST85EF ELEMENT Series 850W SLI/CrossFire Active PFC 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply [this one is normally $149.99 and now available for $69.99].

Finally, this Enermax caught my eye because it is Modular, and going for $59.99 instead of the normal $179.99

ENERMAX EIN720AWT EIN720AWT 720W SLI Active PFC Modular Power Supply

And now my last question, of the three, which one would you suggest I purchase?

Thanks gentlemen!

Soar

They are all good power supplies and any of them would run your system.

for 70 bucks the silverstone element is a great deal.

YHA, I have the DA700 and it'll power my system just fine.

Silverstone psus are very good psus, and don't they make Corsairs?

Theres quite a bit of overlap in power supplies.

Alot of companies make other companies power supplies, some are just rebranded and a new coat of paint.
