Solid choice.  It likely will still be powering miners 10 years from now.

I ordered the Corsair Enthusiast because i got it for $104.99 - $10 Promo ($94.99) and then i also get a $15 MIR which brings it down to around $80. Plus it has a 5 year warranty, and more than 85% of the 102 feedback are 4 star or above. I took everyones opinion into consideration and it came down to this one. I will be coming back to this thread after a few weeks with updates. Thank you everyone, and thank you vapourminer for the list of good manufacturers to choose from, that helped ALOT.

Excellent choice.  TX-series is legit.

I think youre buying junk again.

seasonic, pc power and cooling, corsair, antec, silverstone. thats the list. any of their 650 units will beat those junk 750 units. the junk units LIE about wattage, pure and simple. they rate at lower ambient temps, thats how they get "750" watts. real world temps, its far less. the reputable units test at real conditions.

To the OP, just in case you missed it the first time, I've requoted and added emphasis.

I mostly agree with this list. I use Corsair myself, and I figure if the power supply isn't over $100, it's crap.
Where I diverge from this list, is on Antec. I have had 5 or 6 of their powersupplies go tits up for no good reason... and RMA'ing them was too much of a hassle.
