GIGABYTE XP1200M 1200W Power Supply Review - You read that correctly, we are reviewing a computer PSU today that is being sold under the GIGABYTE banner. GIGABYTE is best known for its motherboards, but that should put it in a good position as to knowing what kind of power an enthusiast PC system needs. Add in that this PSU is a huge 1200 watt beast and that should make things interesting.

Always love the detailed analysis of PSU's that you do. I know that whenever my next build happens I'll be consulting your reviews first.

I'm a bit of a gigabyte fan(MOBO's and GPU's). I think with the price this is mainly aimed at the person who wants that giga-orange theme they have going on now. It'd be interesting to see one if one surfaces.

Great review as always. It's always nice to have more choices in the PSU market, and Gigabyte has a solid reputation as well.

On a side note, with SLI/xFire fizzling out, are the days of 1000watt+ PSU's numbered?

It's interesting when a serious benefit of an over $200 PSU is the color scheme, but that's the first thing I thought too
