Is it worth the extra $100 to move up to the Flagship titanium version?

Street cred?

Usually not going to get your money back from an psu upgrade.

Probably not unless you need a hair more efficiency. I could potentially see some benefit if you had the computer enclosed in a poorly ventilated cabinet but that's about it. Just from less heat being given off from less power loss as heat during AC-DC conversion.

Dang, I only have a "Gold" I am not feeling very efficient compared to today's standards.

860W is just overkill these days. I would like to see more 600W high ends. Ryzen+1080Ti power req.

Thanks. I didn't know if it maybe provided better/cleaner current to the components. It seems that the UPS threads around here seem to devolve into that kind of debate. I'm going to order one here in the next few minutes.

I'm not sure my current supply even has a rating.

This is a great deal on a fantastic PSU. It it the voltage/amperage accuracy that makes a great PSU, and this one has it. Seasonic is arguably the best brand out there. This is more than enough power for 99% of the systems out there. Keep in mind power draw has dropped by over 50% in the last 5 years. Most of today's gaming rigs only use 450w or less, but you need headroom if you overclock.

Gold is fine. They use the same ratings as they always have.

I use the 760XP2 in my daily game rig (5930k/GTX 1080) for the past 24+ months and its been flawless , dead silent and never breaks a sweat . Rails on these are super rock solid . Recommend !

I don't think there's much harm in going over on your power requirements though. Other than paying more upfront unnecessary power of course!

One thing to keep in mind though is these power supplies' "efficiency curve" peaks usually around 50% power output, like this one does. They also lose output over time, usually just a couple % a year.

EDIT: As another SD'er pointed out this is a bell curve!

But efficiency is also low at 10-20%, which means most of time(idling) gonna cost more energy
