The Sparkle Gold Class 850W PSU is so named because it sports an 80+ Gold efficiency rating and while Think Computers did not put that claim to the test they did find a drop of only .1v during full load.  That solid power will translate into a stable computer assuming all other parts are shipshape.  Not everyone is going to have dual GPUs in their cases but for those planning on doing so this PSU is a great choice for powering the system.

“Our friends at Sparkle Computer, manufacturer of some of the best non-reference geForce graphics cards in the industry, has recently gone into the power supply business, and have released their Gold Class series of power supplies. All of these PSUs are modular and 80Plus Gold certified. Today I will be looking at Sparkle Computer’s Gold Class 850 watt power supply, which is not only 80Plus Gold and modular, it sports a full five +12v rails. Read on to check out the Sparkle Computer Gold Class 850!”
