or the enermax liberty 620, i read it does lasts very long, and i also read soem very nice reveiews about it, its also cheaper the the corsair, and enermax is top of the line, what ever you do do not get the noise taker, it usually dies in a year or so, but the liberty is a very good product.

I chose the Antec for two reasons-
1. I have always used antec PSUs. Since day one. For about 8 years. Never failed me at all, the only reason i would get a new one would be becuase my new rig required more power. Right now i am using an Antec 550watt and it is amazing.
2. I know 1000watts seems overkill, but including the hardware i am powering, there will be about 6-8hdds, 2 DVD burners, one blu-ray, cathodes and room for future upgrades. With all this exepensive hardware i cannot afford to skimp on the PSU. Did i mention there will be an Asus soundcard in there somewhere too?

I agree i love antec, my 550W at the moment is extremely good (54A on the 18V rails!), however, i have heard their build quality isnt quite what it used to be and they suffer from more variences in voltage..

i cant see how the 8800GT would be better than a GTX. why it would even be called an 8800GT then?
