Good price. I just ordered this bundled with a mobo from newegg that came out to about the same price. If it was this price yesterday I probably would have ordered from amazon instead.

If early next year...wait and see what Zen has to offer (big intel price cuts at the least).

I would definitely hold off. $308.67 is NOT A GOOD DEAL by any stretch of the imagination. It has hit $300 and lower - on atleast 2 separate occasions earlier this summer.

If your build is not scheduled until "early next year" -- you will have plenty of time to wait for a better deal to come along such as THIS one or THIS one.

Furthermore, Antonline (one of the major sellers on a eBay) has had it on sale for $305 atleast twice this year.

Thank you both! I will wait.

299.99 seems pretty often so this is not a good price.

Back to $320 now. I have Amazon store card with 5% cash back and it would have been 293 for me...

I can only hope you're kidding that you're buying parts that far ahead.

Haha, no, not kidding. This is what I have gotten so far...http://slickdeals.net/f/9025571-evga-750-gq-80-gold-750w-semi-modular-power-supply-55-free-shipping?v=1


You have to agree that's killer price.

I'd wait on the cpu. I know I bought i5 6600k and within 6 months it's $50 cheaper. I'm hoping the gpu's drop on Black Friday so I can upgrade from my 390x to a 1070.

Microcenter has it for $299. It's good to be near a Microcenter. The CPU and Motherboard combo in the invoice below also has a $15 rebate. The downside for me is... Michigan sales tax.

It ALMOST makes up for not being near a Fry's.

I hope you know that EVGA, like many hardware vendors, do not make their own power supplies. I did some research and OEMs like FSP, Enhance, Etasis are behind their label. With the exception of FSP, those OEMs are not what I could consider to be high quality OEMs. I tried to look up the model you bought but was unable to determine the OEM of that particular model. I hope for your sake it's good quality, but for $55 you typically get what you pay for.

You scored a good price on that power supply but did you score any good value? It won't mean much if that PSU craps out on you after 1-2 years of usage. When it comes to building your own PC, you can skimp on the memory, or the motherboard, etc... but NEVER on the power supply. That is one component that is so critical to the rest of the build, I rarely ever compromise on the price unless it's a cheap budget build.

I'm not trying to rain on your parade but I would think twice about that unit if you're out to building a quality gaming PC for yourself. At the very least, call or email EVGA and ask them who is the OEM behind that particular model you bought.

That EVGA 750W GQ isn't a bad PSU... as long as it's kept cool. It's made by FSP and probably rates to be on an "acceptable" tier for PSUs.
