Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Continuous Power Supply

95$ only a 15$ difference from the kingwin and i split the difference at 750W total with tax and shipped comes to 966$
anything else as far as compatibility or up/downgrades i should look at?

and thank you for your input
