    PSU quickly

    Is Thermaltake ToughPower XT 775w a good choice?
    I'm short on money right now so yeah.
    It won the Enthusiast silver award on HardOCP, which is a pretty good review site.

    I believe it's a very decent PSU, with great performance.
    However it's not the most efficient one (as in energy consumption) nor the most quiet one (44,7 dB(A)) compared to others in the same pricerange

    (The persons you mentioned can probably give you a better answer but well)
    The 'FSP Aurum Gold 700W' for example should be more quiet and efficient.

    What kinda price range are you looking at? Personally I tend to recommend Tagan (because I just love them, aside from the little delay between the statuses they had with the 900W one ) and CM (again, although they aren't as fancy as Tagan, they're quite nice), Personally I don't mind having an inefficient PSU, the few extra watts I drain more from the environment could not be given less fucks.

    I need 750w, under 200 in Australia.
    I heard cooler master GX was pretty bad.

    Dunno about all their series, but their higher-end ones are pretty reliable. If you're looking for aussie stuff it's best to ask @Doc or @Sir Ragealot, I wouldn't know anything about what you guys can get

    I've already decided.
    Corsair TX750M.
    Is that good?

    Corsair would most definitely be up there in quality. You're paying for solid build quality and efficiency rather than any wizbang wizardry, and they have good tech support/RMA service. I would get the Corsair if you can find it for a good price.

    I was looking at JohnnyGuru reviews, it wasn't as good as a Silverstone Strider Plus 750.

    You're comparing a fully modular power supply to a partially modular power supply

    Corsair AX750 Power Supply Review

    The AX750 seems to be better in every aspect other than pricing which is 70 dollars more at PCCG

    Heres another review of the older HX750 which is 44 dollars more than the Silverstone at PCCG

    Go for the Silverstone if wanna save the money. Seems like a no brainer to me.

    The Silverstone? Well they're a well known brand, I've never heard of any dramas with them so yeah it probably is good.
