    Well seeing as most newer high end and midrange power supplies are 80 plus certified I'd feel confident buying an 850W or even a 600W and getting a decent amount of juice. Not to say that 1KW isn't necessary for some applications.

    Looking up "power supply reviews" will give you all the sites including this one.

    If you a a technical sort then Johnnyguru is a good site ...........If you want real world tests then start here in the reviews section.

    Running a psu at 50-70% load should improve both efficiency and longevity but as with MB's the quality of the components is important too. A few hours reading should bring you up to speed on the finer details to watch out for. Psu's are rated to work at certain temps so if you live in the tropics you'd be best looking at those rated at 50deg rather than 40deg....this doesn't mean that 40deg rated psu's won't work at high temps just that the max output may be reduced.

    happy reading

    Enermax makes good power supply's, so does Seasonic and Silverstone, as well as Cooler Master. We also reviewed three PSUs from In-Win which all now carry a lifetime warranty.

    What kind of system are you planing on building ? if we knew this information we could help you pick the best PSU for your system.

    I would add Corsair and some of the Thermaltake Toughpower units to the list. I have a Silverstone PSU and it has been great. The lifetime warranty on the In Win power supplies is pretty nice. In Win isn't known for their PSUs (yet) bu from everything I have read they are very well made.
