Question New PSU for my new Ultimate build, check it out!


I am almost ready to place an order for my new computer, took me some time to get all the parts, and I am still unsure about the PSU

I know that I will prob don’t need 900W, but it looks reliable & cool looking PSU. I also like the idea of having removable wires…etc

ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ900 ATX12V / EPS12V 900W


Is this a good PSU? Should I get it?

- Asus P6T Deluxe v2 - Intel i7 920 @4Ghz 1.35v- Prolimatech HS - Cosmos S Case -
- ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ800 PSU
- ATI 5870 - G.SKILL 6GB DDR3 1600 - Razer Barracuda™ AC-1
- 120GB Crucial C300 SSD & 3X WD640AAKS HDD
- Dell 24" 2408WFP & 2407WFP-HC Monitor

It certainly is a great PSU but that's overkill and a complete waste of money. $150 can get you a quality PSU with loads of headroom:

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.

I agree. That's the ooo, ahh factor. You can do better than that for a lot less.
I've got a Antec He500 and it's got the independant rails and the cables that disconnect. If you don't need em, don't plug em in. $90.00 at Intrex. But my baby is the CoolerMaster 600watt psu that is all chrome and modular. $119.00 at what used to be CompUSA.
Keep looking.
