For you it's the best choice. For others it may not be. Depending on what the user needs support for. I believe Asus and Abit to be top brands.. I am currently using an Abit motherboard.

Most ppl under estimate the importance of a good PSU!
Yea I have to disagree? As long as the PSU supports the amps you need on certain rails(and supplies enough power watt-wise), then I don't know how it could go wrong..

The better quality the PSU, the more accurate it will distribute. If you buy some no-name brand, it can be quite faulty... And doesn't last very long (and I am talking about normal conditions).

If you really want to get the maximun potential (power wise) then u are going to need something that gets more than just the job done!

There are many other factors in a PSU besides having enough watts, etc. Proper distribution is very important at all times.

so you think the ABIT "KV8-MAX3" would be a better buy than a K8V SE Deluxe??

The KV8-Max3 is MUCH better than the Asus... Like I said... it benched a hell of a lot more than the Asus in EVERY single test. That's why I bought it!...! YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!
