Great PSU for your SLI GPU's
Pros: Fits in a standard CD/DVD bay, has enough cables to run your cards in SLI, cool changeable lights in front and grill which presents case really nicely, dedicated power so it relieves your main PSU from unnecessary stress, works great and easy to install
Cons: Haven't found any yet ....
Overall Review: If you need that extra power for your GPU's this is a PSU to you should get. (I have my XFX 9800 GTX Black Ed OC'd at 850/2125/1200 and have yet to see any problems)
Pros: Amazing card!! Have it overclocked at 825/2125/1200 running at 75% fan speed and get idle 51C and 69C under stress. Runs everything flawlessly. Upgraded from 7800 GTX and it is literally 10x better. Benchmarked Lost Coast with 8xAA and highest settings 1240x1024 (still have old monitor so it is highest I can go) and got average of 65fps, Crysis same resolution 4xAA and all settings set to high gets 30fps and 40fps without AA which is amazing considering it is on my 3 year old machine (then again it is old original Alienware and these things were meant to last...)
Cons: Card is huge so might be a con for some people also power consumption is unbelievable I have it running on GPU dedicated PSU which I bought for this sole purpose of running these two in SLI (I am waiting for the price to drop beofre I get second one) Anyway I bought FSP Group Booster X5 450W which I recommend (perfect for these two in SLI and heas SLI certified patent pending)
Overall Review: My rig: AMD Athlon FX 3800+ Dual Core OC'd at 2.6 GHz, 4x1GB OCZ Platinum 2-3-2-5 (sic!!), WD 250GB 10,000RPM, SB Audigy ZS 2, XFX 9800 GTX Black Ed OC'd at 850/2125/1200, PSU 650W + GPU deidcated PSU X5 450W
Great quality cable
Pros: It is gold plated, a lot cheaper than cables in stores, long enough to hook any equipment that happens to be close by and image is amazing!!!
Overall Review: I am using it with my Dish DVR recorder and Sony 5.1 Home Theater and am truly happy with it. And I thought only Monster made quality cables...
