I been looking at power supplies that would run three GTX280 and was'nt wanting to spend $300 .Has anyone heard of ABS Targan BZ 1100watt or the XCLIO GreatPower 1200w,FSP Everest Pro 1200,Tuniq Ensemble 1200w,I wanted the BFG Tech EX-1200w but I can't find one.I am also looking at the Cooler Master RSB00-AAAAA3 1100watt it looks to be good.

Grab the Corsair 1000HX very solid

crab?

Anyway... Go for the most effecient one you can get. Don't bother with the 1K PSU's, Even TriSLi wont use nearly that much.

I recommend anything with a Silver Effeciency rating at 850w. You would be set with that even at quadsli.

Yeah go for the Corsair as everyone loves it. it even beats the good Thermaltake 1200W PSU. as one reviewer said its really a 1200W PSU so you cant go wrong!

I myself have it!

I just did'nt want to take a chance on a 850watt power supply running a i7 system and three GTX 280's .I just dont think the Corsair 850w would handle three,I know it would be great for just two GTX 280's. I went with the Cooler Master Ultimate 1100watt and it's silver rateing and the reviews I looked at it got around 88% Efficiency and seem to have no problem running three GTX 280's and everthing else you could throw at it.It has 3-8pin PCIe connectors and 6-6pin PCIe connectors and a 8pin ESP12v and two 4pin ESp12v.I guess I will find out but it is build solid.It goes good with my Cooler master HAF 932 case.
