Just saw this. Rebate ends 3/24. Drop-shipped directly from Seasonic.

$100 - $30 Rebate [bhphotovideo.com] = $70 Free shipping

Unlike Newegg deals, tax not collected for most states.

This is arguably the best power supply for a HTPC or home desktop (non-gaming) at sub $100 level.

- Quieter than most power supplies with a fan (< 15db avg) with a lambda A++ rating by Cybenetics.
- Hybrid mode that stops the fan at low power usage
- 140mm depth that will fit most small form factor cases
- Fully modular
- 10 year warranty

Nvidia recommends a 550w PSU for the RTX 2070. Personally I think that and the 2080 would be considered a high tier gaming build since there are a lot of 10 series cards that are doing just fine like my 1060 for 1080p gaming and my 1070 for 1080p/some 4k. So unless you're going for a RTX 2080, it's not necessary to get a bigger PSU, especially if you're thinking of building a mini itx gaming pc.
A good 550w can handle any psu this can easily handle a 2080

This is way to much when Newegg has a seasonic 620w full modular for $59.99 and $20 MIR.

Here is a great deal on the SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply , https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...rebbr=true

To be fair, garccnd doesn't understand the difference between to/too or waist/waste.

IMHO, this is a great deal as long as the rebate gets paid.

Most typical builds (one overclocked graphics card and an overclocked CPU) draw around 300-400Watts (100W for the processor, 200 for the Graphics card and maybe 50 for the rest of the components) when fully utilized. Considering that power supplies are most efficient between 40 and 80% usage, a good 550 W power supply is ideal. If you buy a bigger one, in particular, if it is not Platinum, you may be wasting money in the long run and also have to contend with more noise and heat.

Just buy Corsair with Seasonic oem. You're going to be without a psu with Seasonic RMA because they do NOT do advanced exchanges. Corsair will.

Ran DUAL 1080Tis on a 750W (Corsair) PSU mining monero 24-7 for months on end... Could probably get by with one 1080Ti on this sucker, but would be pushing it.
You will want to push near rated power to hit top of efficiency curve.

My pc right now does turn on but won't boot. This past two months, it automatically shuts down sporadically, but this week every time i use it it is expected to shut down at some point and now it does power up but wouldn't boot. I'm using thermaltake thought power 775w for an i7 950 processor. Is my power supply dead? And can i replace it with this?
Sounds like you could have a power supply problem.

They recommend that because most people buy the cheapest PSU they can find. This is a top teir PSU and is in whole different class with the caps and other parts used. Check the amperage on the rails compared to a cheaper PSU and you will see the difference. Also check Jonnyguru for some good Seasonic power supply reviews. If you look at power consumption on benchmark reviews even a 1080ti or 2080ti would be fine on a 550W power supply as long as you aren't overclocking a ton.

That is a low end bronze PSU with a 5 year warranty vs a 10 year for this. The parts in this are a lot higher quality so they aren't really comparable.

This is incorrect. Peak efficiency occurs at 50% of the rated power maximum. This is a rather frequently tested measurement in ALL PSU reviews.

Why would you want a Platinum and only 550W? Given today's current hardware, 550W is a bare minimum for low/mid tier gaming builds.
Obviously you have not much knowledge about power supply and gaming requirement. dont compare this 80+ Platinum quality with 80+ Bronze especially when it comes in the "Seasonic" brand.

Actually, computer now and days are more efficient and less power hungry compared to pc from the past. You actually have it backward.

You're preaching to the choir here, I was simply pointing out Nvidia's recommendation. Anyone who has questions about what wattage PSU to buy, should read into it. Basically what I've read is that a PSU are most efficient when the draw is roughly half of it's rated output. Figure out the TDP of your system, then buy accordingly.

Not way too much when you consider the componentry required to comply with the Platinum rating.
It will work and won't make a difference you'll be able to run on both and get the same longevity wether you want to think that a simple certification is going to make your hardware run better or not is up to you. This components are way more efficient than they where 10 years ago.
