    Can I ask another question?

    What's the difference between XFX 850W Black Edition vs. XFX 850W XXX Edition (besides that the one is full modular and the other is semi-modular)?
    Here in Greece they have quite a difference in price. 150 euros the Black Edition and 110 the XXX Edition...

    Which of these would you buy ?

    Thanks again!

    I think that the Black edition is an earlier model that looked like a Borg cube (from Star Trek the Next Generation).
    My preference is for a fully modular psu, but not if it cost 35% more.
    Read the reviews for each model and you should be able to see what the differences are in performance and features.
    Every XFX psu review that I've seen had performance that was virtually identical to the Seasonic model that it was based on.
    Jonnyguru usually discusses the differences when he has reviewed both models.

    I just had a quick look at the RealHardTechX site and it looks like there are four different XFX 850 watt models.
    The reviews from HardwareSecrets (Golden) and Jonnyguru (9+) are top notch.
    You will need to provide the actual model numbers for each unit that you are looking at.

    Nothing to be scared about, any of the XFX power supplies would be excellent choices.

    The power supply is the foundation of any system and I'm a firm believer in buying highly rated, top tier units.

    Ya done goodly.

    BTW.. my Realtek adapter is.. well.. dead until now. Can I make it return to life? Is there any way? I cant imagine how the heck this NIC just died.. I mean.. how?..

    I tried :

    1. Battery out, Power cable off -> NO LUCK
    2. RESET BIOS (Optimized Defaults) -> NO LUCK
    3. Update BIOS from F6 to F7 -> NO LUCK


    Can I try something else?
