No, that's too expensive for what it offers.

Even if it's a platinum one.

And not even semi modular!

Either get this one:

...or if you have a bit more to spend, this one below:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151189&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

Note: i would go with the second option, and forget the PSU matter for good. ;)

That PSU is decent but for ~$100 you can get better units like a Seasonic Focus or a Evga G3.

What is your build? What is your budget for a PSU? If you can spend a bit more I would go for a Seasonic Prime.

But efficiency has nothing to do with how good a PSU is. Plus if you can afford a good unit why not get one.

agreed...should never skimp out on a PSU, get a quality one and it;ll outlast every other component in your system. plus with the warranty that Seasonic units have, its a no brainer...
