Corsair 750W TX PSU
http://c1com.co.nz/shop/step1.php?number=15003

I've heard good things about this range of psu's, another magazine, *cough* PCPOWER PLAY, has the 550w VX and 620w HX listed in the PC builds.
I can't afford it at the moment, but just looking at something for the future.
Compared to my current PSU the figures stack up:

Corsair 750w TX
1x 12v rail rated @ 60amps
750watts max

Highpower 560w
3x 12v rails rated @ 56amps
560watts max

The Corsiar has 8 sata power cables where my current psu only has 4. This would be good for me as I have 5 sata devices and have to use a molex to sata converter.

If your Highpower is this one: http://www.highpowersupply.com/hpc560A12s.html

Then it only has 37A (or 440W) available on the +12V rails. You don't get the combined max by just adding up the three rails.

PC Power Play didn't review the PSU. They had a quick glance at it and plugged it into a computer and marveled at the fact it worked.

Mine is the High Power A12C (HPC-560-A12C) not the A12S

Thanks for the information.

Got it, just read the following:

"12v1 + 12v2 + 12v3 shall not exceed 440w"

I have a Q6600 B3, 3x 250GB HDDS, 8800GT, 2GB Corsair RAM, 2x DVD drives, 4x 120MM fans.

I'm probably cutting it a bit fine. I don't run over clocks as standard.

EDIT: found this website:
http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Now this is a tool that will take all the devices in your PC and give a estimate of a recommended PSU. For me it gave back:

338watts
