So far I came up with these choices. My budget $280.

OCZ Z Series 1000W Power Supply


What I hate: O.k reviews in performance most rated it at 7.5.



What I hate: Flat cables and they don't look long enough.

Mushkin Enhanced Joule 1200W PSU


What I hate: I didn't found any reviews anywhere. What draw me to it was this video on youtube.

Another choice:

SILVERSTONE ST1000-P 1000W ATX 80 PLUS SILVER Modular PSU (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256057)

Excellent ratings and only $190.

the corsair cables, although are stretched tight in my system, get everywhere without the need for extensions. The secondary motherboard power (6 pin right?) is long enough to stretch behind the motherboard tray and loop back infront at the top, but barely.

My Corsair power supply cables are more than long enough. I have them bunched up behind the side panel.

I speak for betterdan. Yes, he is gay, and yes, he is recommending the Corsair power supply.

I had an OCZ 1000w power supply before this one and it didn't even last a year before it went belly up (sorry it didn't go ass up for you Bob). I had read they had a lot of problems with them so I won't buy another power supply from them.

So yea, what Bob said :bleh:
