Especially considering the brands you used before, and the subsequent results of using those brands, I certainly would. It may not be a Seasonic, but it's a solid PSU with a great warranty.

It seems to be $105 ($85 AR). XFX 750W XXX is $85 ($75 AR) and it's a Seasonic built unit with semi-modular cables. I'd rather have that one

Bought a PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W with free dvd 99.00 for a new build.
I am running a 930@4200,1.31v 18g of mem with a 5970 + 5870 using a old orignal PC Power Silencer 750W
Thats 3 5870 style GPUs on that old 750ps.
I also avoid using a Modular Power Supply on a high draw system.
On a non stressed system a Modular Power Supply i cool.

I have never heard of PC Power, but it is 80 Plus Silver.
They were one of the first ps with a 4 plug pci-e in that time range.

Why would modularity be an issue in power hungry systems?

Could cause more resistance and or heat at modular plugs.
Back in the amd cpu days I had two different mb smoke up the 20 pin power connector on the mb.
After replacing the ps connecter and cleaning ps mb connecter both pc still worked.

That's just one instance, doesn't prove anything either way

$40ar is a sick price for a 700W unit. As reviewed by hardwaresecrets, that's a decent unit. It's just 80+ bronze but whatever, it's only an issue if you don't mind fan noise at higher loads

I don't like rebates because they are annoying to do. plus you can lose warranty.

$59.99 still seems like good price.

I don't think the cables are sleeved on this power supply though. might look ugly.
