    Hi all - I was checking out the OCZ600GXSSLI for a new PS but not sure if it's 80 plus certified. Figure if I'm forking the money on a new PS might as well be efficient. What do you guys recomment for an 80plus PSU around $100?

    Thanks in advance:)

    Thanks for the reply....unfortunately the extremepower line isn't 80plus certified. Their real power line is though, maybe I can track one of those down here in Canada.

    certification is just BS very few psu's are even tested. but i do know that many seasonic psu's are certified which means that rebadged seasonics(like Pc power & cooling) should be very efficent as well

    By the way that OCZ that you are looking at is more than likely made by Fortron source, or PC power. Both OEM's are on the list posted in post #5
