Why? It's a no-name brand and has very mediocre reviews.

here is a review on the topower 900
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/738

it gets a good review,,but out all i listed, it would be my last choice..

couple good links for power supply reviews-
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/page/power
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Review_Cat&recatnum=13

these 2 sites do excellent jobs on reviewing power supplys



this coolermaster is suppose to be good-
http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?nam [...] a6b497148c

xfx is also rated great
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] _-17207001

this is the one i probably would buy-
http://www.mwave.com/mwave/SKUSear [...] ia=BA50048

here is a 900w with good reviews-
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] _-17342012

another good corsair,,,-

I agree that a Corsair HX850 would be a better choice (though the one you linked to as a "900W with good reviews" quite simply doesn't have good reviews). If the OP already has the topower though, it should work just fine.

That power supply calculator on ASUS's site is utter rubbish. For example increasing your fans by 3 or adding a HDD increases the required wattage by 50. No HDD or fan uses even close to that much power. You should try a proper power supply calculator like this http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp before you go buy a new power supply for yourself.

A single 9600GT needs about 5 amps (60 watts).

[strike]The Asus power supply calculator must be a piece of crappy software.[/strike]
Never mind. If you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all.

You Have two eyes?

BTW I clarified that in the post in which I wrote:

'I too, got the result from Antec PSU calculator :) '



We're Just trying to help you...

Honestly, 350-400W is MUCH more believable for that system than 800+W. I would say that the calculator you used in the OP was complete garbage.

I don't know. I do know that I've measured my system's power consumption at right around 800W though, and it uses a pair of 4870x2s, 5 hard drives, and an overclocked i7 that runs only slightly cooler than a nuclear furnace (well, OK, my TRUE does a darn good job, but the amount of heat my computer can pump out is staggering. I haven't turned on the heat in my room in a month, despite it being cold with the window slightly open for ventilation). If 3 9600 GTs and whatever else you have in your system comes to 800W, I'd be shocked, because I'm fairly certain that on a 1 to 1 basis, a 9600 GT GPU uses less power than a 4870.

Besides, I just put my system into that calculator, and it recommended a 1200W minimum. I've been running it for almost a year and a half on a Corsair HX1000, and I've actually measured the power consumption at 800W peak. That pretty much confirms that the calculator there is garbage.
