I'm surprised you guys skipped the SSR-850PX. At $125, it's an excellent upgrade from Seasonic's 850w Gold PSU yet nowhere near as expensive as the Titanium one.

The EVGA SUPERNOVA 650 P2 does not have two EPS connectors. The picture in the article even shows the back of the PSU having only one CPU (CPU1) modular connection.

Why is a $100 plus power supply better than a good quality $50 one?

How long and in how many systems can you use your $100 plus power supply?

Is paying $100 for a power supply cost effective "insurance" on a $500 computer? At what point does it become cost effective insurance?

If I'm paying over $100 for a power supply where do I cut costs to pay for it? The case? The SSD or hard drive? No optical drive? The CPU cooler?

I'm looking for frugal, cost effective advice. I know that this article is about the "best" and that I can find these answers in the forums. But I still don't understand why manufacturers just don't build a "best" power supply in say 500, 750 and 1000 watts. Wouldn't economies of scale make the cost of the units affordable?

I stand corrected. I have a 650 P2 and I didn't see two connectors. I must've grabbed a cable from my 850 box, thinking it was the same. So it appears to use just the single connection from CPU1 out of the PSU using a cable that has both the 4+4 and an 8-pin EPS.

Thanks Turkey!
