Default Enermax Galaxy 1000W

Hey,
Just wondering, if this is a decent PSU to buy for benching? Am being offered it for 60 quid
If you have other recommendations don't hesitate to say
Thanks

So does that mean you'd reccommend something else? What else could I get for the price?
Atm I'm using a 850W SilverStone Strider I think, would that be better?
And what do you mean it's a good 800W PSU?
That review doesn't say anything like that unless I missed it?

its good..thats what i mean...its really...its name should be galaxy 800w though...

4 years ago ...the naming scheme wasn't that important...

i would get it over your strider....

if you find a cheap corsair hx850...thats a super gem

Been offered a HX1000 for double the price of the enermax, but I just can't afford it
I can't afford a new HX850, and I've posted wanted threads, and no one has put forward a HX850
To be fair, this PSU should be more than enough considering at the moment I'm only doing 2D, and the most power hungry cpu I have is an i5 670
