Default Topower PSU

Newegg.com - TOPOWER POWERBIRD TOP-900W 900W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.92 SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified (Dual GTX 260 and below) CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Modular SLI Power Supply - Power Supplies
Im thinking of getting one actually for something around these specs:

Core i7 920 OCd
285GTX OCd
6GB DDR3 Cas7

Now, i can get one for $199 AUD, has six rails at 20A each and is 100% modular.
Can anyone reccomend why i wouldnt get one when the Antec 850W thats not entirely modular and has less wattage costs $70 more in my area.

PS: I plan to have the PSU for pretty much ever and for all my future upgrades, even though a 750W would suffice.

Specs look good but I would be hesitant to run a PSU without seeing a good solid review first.

Check out jonnyguru.com and look through some of the budget, high power PSUs.

hardocp said they were a pretty nice PSU....

Fully sleeved, and finished in a titanium-like chrome finish, this unit looks as good as it performs, not to mention, it is quiet as well.
The only reason i was unsure was that it has little if any mention in our highly recommended power supply guide.

Looking at that review it does seem to be pretty decent. If it fits the bill then I wouldn't hesitate trying it out.
