OCZ GameXStream 1010W

4. Conclusion

It's isn't common, or at least it hasn't been, to require a PSU with a 1010W rating like the OCZ 1010W. But with the arrival of multi-GPU technology graphics cards like Nvidia's 8800GTX, dual graphics cards setups, arrays of HDDs and of course CPU overclocking, gamers now require as much power as they can get from their PSU.

We have been using the OCZ GameXStream 600W PSU as the PSU in all of our test beds to date without any problems whatsoever. The "improved" 1010W version will replace our previous choice since it offers more "juice" for cases where we test dual graphics cards setups. The 3 years PowerSwap replacement program warranty is also a plus, ending those painful and aggravating endless return-for-repair loops!

Overall, we cannot find any serious drawback which should prevent you from buying the OCZ GameXStream GXS1010W SLI-Ready Power Supply. The price is a lot to pay for a PSU (US$250~300), but high powered gamers should be able to afford the money. especially if they are looking for a futureproof power supply.

- The Good

  • Active PFC design
  • 3 years warranty replacement

- The Bad

  • High price
  • There is no modular cable management
