    I just built a computer for a buddy of mine. Low-mid range system using AMD Kuma @ 2.7 GHz/4 GB DDR2 800 RAM/WG 250 GB HD & ATI 4830 GPU. Bought the CX400 Corsair PSU from NG for $39.99 after rebate. Corsair makes a fine PSU no question! Even their low-end CX400 is still nice @ 30 Amps on a single rail & whisper quiet.

    It's not the Corsair 850 Watt by any means, but still solid for the coin with good caps. My only gripe is that Corsair needs to make a modular PSU in the 750 Watt range. I mean they have the 620 & then bumps up to the 1000 in modular. They need to addres this! I own a Antec Neo-Power 550 Watt PSU (Seasonic build) that came with my Antec Sonata case & it's been wonderful!

    My next build which don't be for another 12-18 months (see my sig) I would look for a Corsair only if it's modular in the 750 Watt range. If not, I'll get another modular Antec PSU.

    Just picked one of these TX850 and replaced my Fortron Everest 1010W. Rig 7 started rebooting on its own again. Just prior to that, the hard drives were surprisingly slow. Very annoying. I think the 6 HD's, 1 optical, 4 case fans, floppy, internal card reader, etc. may be straining one of the 4 individual 20A, 12v rails. I think I am just going to stick with large single 12v rails from now on. The TX850 has a single 70A 12v rail. I love corsair psu's. Lots of connectors, ez-molex plugs, 6+2 pci-e connectors, braided sheath wiring, quiet, good build quality, and 5 yr warranty. Good stuff.
    Rig 1: Asrock 939Dual-SATA2, X2 4800 @ 235x12, 1.40v, TRUE 120, 4X1 Gb OCZ Platinum Rev2, Evga 7950, M-Audio 2496, CM690, Corsair TX750, Win7 RC 64 bit
    Rig 2: DFI UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert, X2 4800 @ 12x240, 1.46v, Ultima 90, 4X1 Gb OCZ Platinum Rev2, 2x8800GT SLI, P160W, TX750w, Audigy 2ZS, WinXP pro
    Rig 3: Asus A7N8X-Dlx v2.0 Barton 2500(AQXEA 0319) @2200mhz, Silent boost, OCZ (2-3-3-6-1T) 2x512mb, 9800Pro, P160, HE Neo550, Raid-1, Win2K
    Rig 4: Asus A7V880, 2600M (200x12.5), SP-97, Panaflo HS, OCZ 2x1gb Plat.rev.2, BFG 6800 OC, AC Silencer, Antec 902, TC550W, Pioneer 110, WinXP pro
    Rig 5: DFI RDX200 Opty 148 @250x11, AC Freezer Pro, TCCD 2x512, X1650Pro, Sonata II, Nexus NXP 201, GameXstream 700W, Win2K.
    Rig 6: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P E8400 @ 500x8.5, TRUE120, 4x2gb Buffalo FireStix 8500, x1650 Pro, CM Scout, Everest 1010W, Win7 RC 64bit
    Rig 7: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P E8400 @445x9, TRUE 120, 4x2gb GSkill 8500, Visiontek 3870, Corsair TX850, Antec 900, WinXP64

    This post may as well be mine. I was going to post my opinions on the 400 watt Corsair that I just used for a build that is identical to what you built but I agree completely with you so thanks for saving me the typing.

    I also have a 550 watt Antec in my main system and it's been flawless. Hehe, I also plan on my next build being in 12-18 months and will also be looking for a modular Corsair in the 750 watt range! I was very impressed with how good of a quality Corsair has for $40. They even throw in zip ties to tidy everything up with.
