Antec High Current Gamer 900W
The power requirements of enthusiast and gaming PCs have increased dramatically over the last few years, due in no small part, to the development of ever more powerful and sophisticated graphics processors. We’ve seen behemoth cards for killer gaming rigs take hold in the market, needing more and more juice in computer systems in the process. As a result, the computer power supply unit has risen in stature from being almost an afterthought to becoming a critical component in any modern PC. We can’t count how many time we’ve said "Don’t skimp on a power supply" in the forums to those seeking build advice.
And for those enthusiasts that feel the need for power and want those beefy graphics cards and highly overclocked processors that suck juice like it’s going out of style (Bulldozer, anyone?), the need for a quality power supply becomes quickly apparent.
The Antec High Current Gamer 900W is one such higher-wattage power supply, coming in a sleek black and red design and 80PLUS Bronze certified. It’s not modular, but comes with an attractive price tag of about $140, so there’s something to be said here for good value in a powerful unit.
Let’s take a closer look at this Antec power supply and see how it performs.
