IMO, quality from best to worst

PCP&C
OCZ
Antec
Thermaltake
Ennermax




and everything else blows

Any of these are excellent choices, well except for the last category lol. You really cant go wrong with any of them.

No. Im going to get rid of it as soon as possible and get an OCZ PowerStream.

Ive had nothing but problems with the X-Connect, primarily random restarts. Ill get random restarts constantly for a day or so, and then it will be fine for a month. Its really a pain

Antec True Power PSUs the 480W one would probably work better than the 550W ones out there because it runs at 480W for a long period of time instead of going at 75% like all the other PSUs.

yep... they also save you the most $$$ in the long run because they have like 85%+ power conservation when it is not in full use.

Cheers for all the info! I think i'll go for this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...37#DetailSpecs
But do i need a second PCI-E connector on the psu to connect two PCI-E graphics cards or can i get a connector or something and if i get a connector will the PSU still be able to provide enough power for both PCI-E graphics cards?
