Hey guys, im looking at buying the EVGA G2 850W but im not sure how to tell if it'll be fine for 24/7 80% load usage.
Im also not sure how to compare it to other psus.
Any pointers on how to compare them?

Ask people that use psu's

The Evga plat 850 p2

The rosewill quark 850 on sale at newer are both better.

The Evga 1300 g2 is a stud but the 850 g2 and smaller are not as good.

I have run Evga plat p2 750 and 850 no problems

And the 750 850 1000 1200 quarks no' worries


I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Thanks for that list, I've just noticed that the EVGA 850 G3 is a little bit cheap, I assume this is a higher quality product, any idea if it's okay?

The G3 is a compact edition, it's 30mm shorter and has a 130mm fan while the G2 has a 140mm fan. The G3 has 6 x 6+2 cables while the G2 only has 4 x 6+2 + 2 x 6. Otherwise there are not many differecens.

All in all, you're always better off using PSUs others are satisfied with. Otherwise there are a lot of factors to look for.

I use a 850W G2 in my main computer without any issues for 3 years now and I have mostly 1300W G2 in my mining rigs, the oldest being almost 3 and a half years old and still working like and looking like if it was purchased yesterday. The 10 years of warranty is there for a reason.

I used to have an EVGA 650W (NEX650G) and I had to send it back as it was completely crap (super loud and just bad build quality) so I wouldn't go below 850W.
