I am looking to replace a Corsair HX850W Professional Power Supply power supply that is going bad for a gaming rig I built around early 2012.

I would like to buy the power supply from www.canadacomputers.com

This is the full specs of the rig I have at the moment.

ASUS p6x58d-e motherboard (socket lga1366)
Intel i7-i950 CPU (socket 1366 cpu)
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked (Part Number: 01G-P3-1567-AR)
Corsair hx850w Professional Power Supply
4GB GSKILL RAM x 3 (12 GB TOTAL)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Cooler (Original Cooler Not the EVO version)
Cooler Master HAF X case
Samsung SSD 860 Evo 500 GB
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM hdd
Generic CD-ROM BURNER

Can anyone give me any suggestions on which power supply I could purchase from www.canadacomputers.com that would be good as a replacement for the above rig?



I was looking at these power supplies but i am not sure if they are good or if there is something else less expensive I could purchase for my money that would suit the computer power of the above rig as I have not looked at building computers in quite sometime now:

Any help is appreciated.

I agree. Whole system as is would only be pulling 450w if that. Above psu is fine. Rmx 650 goes for $160 if want bit more headroom for cpu overclock and 10yr factory warranty.

Either psu will save you coin, 100$+. Almost pays half or a bit more for a 1050Ti 🙂

As per your original question though, can't go wrong with any of the three psu's. All are decent quality with minor differences. Go by the warranty at Corsair.
