    None.


    If its to power the rig in your SysSpecs then a Corsair 600w will do just fine and is no doubt around the same price. :)


    Also, for you Canadians, check out www.directcanada.com & NCIX (they price match)...often the best deals there. :toast:



    Edit: Some choices:

    Non-modular.

    Modular.

    For your rig? totally overkill, grab a corsair 620w and be done with it, even that is plenty PSU for your needs.

    Why exactly do you think you need 850w? is this for your current rig?

    great choice but i wouldnt suggest more then a 750watt for you but if they dont have the corsair 750 then i would agree with you getting the 850

    one thing to remember is that corsair IMO is hands down the best, most reliable, top quality power supply sold today so you cant go wrong buying one.
