    I currently have the Toughpower 850w in my system, but am thinking about upgrading to a 1000w+ unit. Contemplating the following:

    1. Corsair HX1000
    2. Enermax Galaxy EVO 1250
    3. Enermax Revolution 85+ 1050

    Any preferences?

    I decided on the Corsair 1000 watt and I've been very happy. I'm thankful for modular as it helps with the cable clutter. The other choice was the Enermax Revolution 85+ 1050. I went with Corsair as I have the 750 TX and was pleased with it as well.

    Yeah definitely modular. I have the HX650 in one of my other computers and it's been great. The Toughpower 850 I'm using right now is modular, and it's been great as well.

    I'm using the HX1000 too and its a brilliant PSU. But the Enermax revolution 85+ 1050 surely is a premium one you have listed there... Enermax Galaxy is an old one, go for the revolution 85+
    definitely an excellent PSU

    using the Enermax revolution 85+ 1050 myself and the spacing of the power plugs and the configuration of the connectors are the best I have used yet. But then again I have not looked closely at your other considerations so they might be just as nice.

    There doesn't seem to be much point going up from 850W to 1000W to be honest. Might as well just jump up another level otherwise don't bother upgrading. The Galaxy EVO is the new one, me and Deton both have it. The Revolution is also very good but again, the wattage. Of all those, Galaxy EVO in a heartbeat.

    Yeah I think I'll go with the 1250 Skyguy... it'll look nice with my Rampage III when they're released.

    Thanks for the input all.
