    Hello,

    I am looking for a good budget PSU.
    I have narrowed it down to the Antec EA750G PRO, since its the most affordable for me right now.
    All other brands are way overpriced due to non import in my country.
    Can anyone tell me is this PSU good..???
    Antec has made it in partnership with Seasonic.
    Currently I was using Corsair vs 650 since 7 years but its about to die real soon.

    Any advice is welcome.
    Thank you.

    OP, you asked opinions about this particular PSU. But we need to know what exactly that PSU will be powering up.
    Example, I have such and such CPU, motherboard and GPU and power requirements are x,y,z and this PSU will be enough for the task?

    I been using Antec Power supply for better part of decade + there high end psu are made by seasonic never had issue with them powering any of my systems, and I tend to reuse my PSU in new builds

    Current Antec HCG 750m ( which was RMA to track down system rebooting issue which wasnt due to psu in first place but Antec replace it gladly under the 5 year warranty, Original PSU was the model the Antec HCG 750m replaced not sure if what I have was made from seasonic but works great
    was first in my
    i7 920
    6gb
    EVGA x58 sli le
    660gtx
    3 120mm fans
    Zalman HSF
    SSD
    HHD

    (current psu in this build for year and half)

    then I moved it into my
    i7 6700k
    16gb
    1070ti
    asrock z170 extreme 4
    3 140mm fans
    Noctua D14
    2 SSD

    Still work as good as day I got it. current PSU is roughly 5 years old with about 8 to 10 hours up time a day. Voltage is rock solid at 12.050v~12.080v loading both cpu and gpu

    Unless you get dud which happens sometime (the original PSU I got from RMA has massive coilwhine issue, when the system was power on and transformer buzzing when the system and turned off so that RMA was RMA'ed) should be perfectly fine
