Antec Basiq Plus

Very good PSU, the extra you get with are really good, you get everything! Though do make sure you have a big enough case, I've got to buy a new case because there are that may different wires that I don't need it's clogging up the case abit. It's all good though, well worth the money!

Antec 550 Basiq plus

First of all dont let the word "Basiq" put you off. Antec are producers of quality PSU's.

The PSU comes with lots of amps over three 12v rails (22a x2 and a 25 amp rail) which appears to be more amps than you get on alot of similar voltage PSU's.

Comes with great connectivity, again more than you get with alot of other PSU's, including (but not limited to) 6 molex and both PCI-e 8 pin and PCI-e 6 pin.

The cables are mesh covered so look more presentable in a PC with a side window and the PSU is of modular construction which cuts down on unused cables hanging around the interior of your PC.

Has enough volts for an overclocked system with 2 GPUS's (i.e. an Nforce board with a GTX 295 and overclocked core 2 quad will use a little less than 450 volts) but if you intend using 3 or 4 GPUS you will need no less than a 700 watt PSU.

The exterior is plain metal(not a big deal especially since the visible side, in a case with a window, is mainly covered by a large sticker anyway) and is fitted with a quiet 120mm fan.

It isnt SLI certified but has more than enough juice for two GPU's as mentioned above.

I cannot see an 80+ energy efficiency certification on the box/paperwork but some sites do say it is an 80+ energy efficient PSU. I'm not sure on that point. The paperwork does refer to it being energy efficient though. It certainly seems to run cooler than my last (cheap) PSU which died on me.

It is ATX 12v version 2.2 compliant and comes with 2 year warranty.

In my search for a quality and value for money PSU this appeared to be the best specification for the money.
