This PSU looks really appealing. The 1000W has 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon. My only grievance is that it only has 4 eggs on Newegg from around 8 people. If it had 5 eggs I probably wouldn't even hesitate.

I know no one here is psychic, but can anyone who was around for the last time Nvidia released a new architecture of GPUs say if the price of power supplies will drop further? I was around, but I didn't pay to GPU prices two years ago when Nvidia released the 900 series.

A user on slickdeals said the PSU prices will continue to drop due to the newer architecture needing fewer Watts, so prices of power supplies will drop as fewer and fewer people need high-wattage power supplies.

I'm trying to decide if I should buy now for my first PC build or wait another two weeks to wait for prices to hopefully drop even further for 750W+ power supplies. I'm trying not to build my PC past July 29th, since that's the last day I can put in a cheap Windows 7 OS into my motherboard and get a free upgrade to Windows 10.

Thanks in advance for the help.

The likelihood of 750W+ PSUs being any lower that $70 from companies like Corsair or EVGA in the near term are pretty slim. I'm sure they'll be cheaper around Black Friday, but I doubt you're waiting that long.

If you want a 750W, the cheapest you'll be able to do is the Thermaltake ToughPower TP-0750M, which routinely goes on sale around $55 AR each month. It is made by CWT and a fairly decent PSU for the money.

They're around now...

But you really don't need even a 550w PSU unless you're going dual GPU. 1000w just isn't needed except for dual CPU, dual to tri GPU and a ton of other accessories like water cooling, 8 hard drives, a small hurricane inside the case, etc. The further you stray away from your actual needed power the less efficient the PSU gets. Like if your system only needs 300w and you're using a 1000w PSU you're less efficient than if you bought the same class of PSU but with a 500w limit.

Ground Shipping is $12 for that PSU, so as I said, probably won't see much less than $70 AR for EVGA G2 or GQ series or Corsair RM series.

You're really telling someone to wait til black friday for $2? $59.99 AR + $12 shipping is $72 vs the $70 number you're targeting? Or you can get the 850 from your own link for $79 AR w/ free ship. Geesh.

No, I'm not. The deal you mentioned was a good deal. I was just pointing out that there is $12 shipping, so that's not the "true" cost unless you're buying other components to get over the $100 cap for Free Shipping at NCIX-US.

He asked if there is going to be a significant price drop on PSUs in the near future (he mentions the July 29th Windows 10 cutoff date) and I said no, there probably will not be on top-tier PSUs. $70 AR for a 750W PSU is a pretty typical sale price.

Last year around Black Friday, the Antec TruePower 750-C was $49.99 AR Shipped and the XFX TS Series 650W PSU was $39.99 AR:

I don't really expect those types of deals to come around just because more power efficient Graphics Cards came out. In fact, overall I think the PSU deals are going to suck more this year with TigerDirect out of business. Now it's just NCIX and Newegg basically.

All that moaning and groaning about a "true" cost of $2 over your target... laugh out loud
