£80 is painful?
It's probably 10% the cost of your SLI setup.

Think about it this way. A cheap PSU is probably what, £50? So you're only spending an extra £30 to get the painful one.

Don't cheap out. I'd get a quality Gold rated PSU. They're not that expensive especially considering it's powering every component in your system and a poor one can potentially take out your entire system.
It's an area you don't want to skimp on.

Be warned. Check reviews. I got one from Amazon on a lightning deal and it was ok for about an hour then at idle it developed a small ticking. Almost like something was touching the fan blades slightly. Then under load it was like a helicopter. Checking reviews it seems I wasn't the only one. Sent back and replacement was the same! Refunded and went for a good deal on a Silverstone PSU. Far better. You get what you pay for and these are cheap for a reason. Read the reviews!

Make sure you read some reviews before purchasing any power supply. Even some of the branded ones can be quite poor quality as most rebrand other manufacturers so it can depend on the model of PSU.

Just spend the money. You don't want to cheap out on the power supply, trust me I made that rookie mistake myself back when I first started building PCs. Personally I would recommend XFX or EVGA, go for 80+ gold rated and modular/semi-modular if you need it (I actually think semi-modular is superior in most instances as the hard wired cables will be bundled tighter at the PSU end).

Recommend you look for a PSU matching the above then check out jonnyguru.com/ for a review. Look for other customer reviews on Amazon etc. as well.

What gpu's are you going to use for SLI ?
As for cases I love my Fractal Design R4 , but there are plenty of Fractal cases with good airflow options. However if you are worried about spending a reasonable amount on a good psu it may not be your best option as there not that cheap for a reason.

Corsair use a number of ODMs to design and manufacture their power supplies so the quality will vary.

I may not have articulated myself well, I wanted a good PSU that's recommended by you guys but in some deal or offer to help reduce the sting
In no universe would I skimp on a PSU, my gfx card draw 250 each so 500w for GPU alone, another 150 for CPU and. It's so I thought a 700/800 watt one would.keep them in the 80% power draw efficiency range.
As for cases fractal r4 seems good.

So any PSU recommendations.
I am aware some PSUs from big manufacturers are rebadged and would want a good one.

Cheers guys.

Expect to pay £100 for a decent 800W Gold rated PSU.
I'd be tempted to go the whole hog and get this for £140 as its reviews are top drawer.

Agreed it's superb.

Any other recommendations?

I will need 700w and above as its for a sli setup.
Cheers.

Have this and no issues. Want to upgrade to modular though for better cable management. I have a S340 so doesn't really matter much.
