    Power supply

    Which one should I get?
    My Antec HCG 900watt was a shit choice and it's failing on me.
    I need information about amps.
    Overclocking i7 2600k to around 4.4Ghz
    GTX 580 needs around 42 amps so yeah.
    I know they all fit the requirements.
    But I don't know which is better and ups and downs.

    OCZ Technology ZX Series 850W Power Supply [OCZ-ZX850W] - $199.00 : PC Case Gear
    Corsair AX750 Gold Power Supply [CMPSU-750AXAU] - $215.00 : PC Case Gear
    Seasonic X-760 80Plus Gold 760W [PSUSEAX760WGOLD] - $225.00 : PC Case Gear

    From personal experience Tagan's truly awesome but Chieftec's never failed me either (note that the only good chieftec stuff is the really high-end one, all the rest are subpar). I dunno how much power you're drawing from each rail, but there are individual limits too, that applies to every PSU (900W is the sum of how much power you can carry over all the rails simultaneously, not on just a few of them).

    From those listed I dunno which I would pick, I never really got into details about PSUs. I just buy Tagans for my builds, always worked great for me

    Only mainstream brands here.
    I guess I'll go with seasonic.
    Someone recommended me that on tomshardware.

    I was going to say Seasonic. Corsair are good but I prefer Seasonic for sub-1000 watts. Also never buy OCZ. They are very good value but they buzz shitloads and have some dodgy capacitors.
