For many users, picking a power supply is a matter of finding something discreet, reliable, and affordable. Other folks tend to shop for a unit with enough juice and connectors to power Skynet. BFG Tech's new EX-1000 unit may well satisfy the latter crowd.
The EX-1000 is rated to deliver up to 1,000 watts of power via quadruple 12V rails, and it has modular cabling for peripheral and PCI Express connections. BFG got the unit certified with the 80 Plus Bronze label, as well, which guarantees 82-85% efficiency at loads of 20%, 50%, and 100%.
If you're eager to cram your computer full of expensive graphics cards, the EX-1000's six PCI Express power connectors should also come in handy. Three of them are six-pin plugs, while the other three are hybrid six/eight-pin units.
Other nice touches: BFG covers the EX-1000 with a lifetime warranty, and it claims 24/7 tech support. All those perks come at a price, though. This puppy will set you back $199.99 at Best Buy right now.
