Would this be a good PSU? One thing I really want to know is, is it a huge difference from a modular PSU? because I want to get a modular one but none of them have LED'S and the OCZ Fatal1ity 750w people said to go elsewhere, What are your opinions? Should I go for this PSU? is it easy to cable manage? or should I go for the OCZ with modular + flat cables? ANY EXTRA ADVICE would be a huge benefit

Thanks,Sam

The GS line is CWT made on an entry level platform/design.
What cpu and gpu are you powering?

Led in a psu would be the last thing on my list.
A $6 case fan can add that effect.
The Corsair TX line is higher quality then the GS line and cheaper most of the time.
Amd power requirements are next to nothing = HD7000 series is even more efficient then the previous 6000 series.
A 7870 is 175W max.
Like 500W units will run them.

I think GS Series is better than CX series and TX is better than GS series.. I have GS600 and it has a blue LED.. with a bottom mounted PSU you won't see the LED.. I can barely see the light under my casing.. So forget about the LED and go for the TX..

The vat is charged twice aswell for some odd reason and what is surcharge?
