    Visually, the Antec High Current 750 watt power supply looks great with its style and solid contruction. The power supply is aimed at the gamer and enthusiast.  When trying to color coordinate the inside of your PC you can’t go wrong with this power supply since many of today’s PC cases have a black interiorand RED LED's. Efficiency ratings are what PCWizKid also focused on and with a 80 Plus Bronze rating our tests indicated a very efficient and stable delivery of power under load.  Lastly the quiet psu fan made the icing on the cake for a well rounded gaming PSU.  the only thing to popint out is the fact that this is not a modular PSU which means having to do more cable management in your PC which for some people can be a turn off.  Other than that it delivers for a $99 USD PSU.
