PSU options: Enermax Revolution 850W


I'm upgrading my current build to a new one. I have the GFX cards already.

Core i7 920,

Asus P6T Deluxe,

Noctua U12P or TRUE120,

6GB OCZ Platinum 1600,

2 GTX 285 1Gig

Antec P183 (I'll really miss my easy to work with Ultra Aluminus, but want something more quiet and without a window for LEDs to light up my room).

I really like the Enermax Revolution 850W, the efficiency, plenty of power on the rails, clean power etc. I'm also a fan of the long cables (especially if I go with a P183 case) as well. But 2 things I don't like are the ridiculous cost and I don't really need a 850W PSU.

I've been looking for comparison to similar but cheaper PSU's. I'm looking for high efficiency, long cables and the like.

Does anyone know of any good PSU's off hand I can look up?

I would recomend the Corsair HX850w psu delivers more power than advertises decent efficinecy etc. has basically everything your looking for.

review here: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.p...850w_atx_psu/5

Price £132.24 from Novatech : http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...html?csr-hx850

If this is out of your price range check fleabay i saw a brand new Corsair HX1000 go for £115.

Let me kno wot u think =]
