PSU Question

PSU Question
I'm building a gaming computer and I want to buy this PSU. However despite reading the article about what to look for in power supplies on this site twice I'm still not sure, and would like to get some opinions. I'm looking for something high quality that'll last me a long time, and support two high end video cards should I ever choose to buy another one. So is this a good choice?

Hello. I couldn't find the PSU you wanted on this list: http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/1/323050/ShowThread.aspx

However, I personally wouldn't recommend a brand like Ultra. In terms of power supplies, brands count, and you want a reputable, reliable brand. You can never go wrong with a brand like SeaSonic, and I'd recommend you stick with the brands Matt recommends on the site.

At $150, it's far from a good deal. Ultra PSUs aren't that bad, but I've seen better.

If you want to handle two of some of the highest cards, pretty much anything but Radeon 5970/GTX 470/480/580, the CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6817139009 will do the trick.

If you want to handle really any high-end cards, including Radeon 5970/GTX 470/480/580, the SILVERSTONE ST1000-P 1000W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6817256057 would be my recommendation.
Laptop: MSI GS30 Shadow-045 Dimensions: 12.6" x 8.9" x 0.8" 2.65lbs CPU: Intel Core i7-4870HQ Quad-Core + Hyper-Threading OC 2.5-3.9GHz RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Video Card: Intel Iris Pro 5200 Storage: 2x128GB SDD RAID0 Audio: ASUS Xonar U3 USB Sound Card + Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones Screen: 13.3" - 1920 x 1080 IPS + 27" Dell P2715Q IPS 3840 x 2160 Keyboard: Filco Majestouch MX Cherry Blue Mouse: Logitech MX518
