Power - it's what we need to run this addiction of ours. The more the better, is the current thinking. With the newest video cards using up to 300 watts of power, it's no wonder that power supplies are beefing up to meet that demand. Many people, however, are still following the same routine with regards to the power supply; it's usually the last thing on the list when planning your dream system. You have just a few of those precious dollars you work so hard for left to purchase one, so you end up with a cheap 400-600 watt power supply, trying to feed that power hungry set of video cards. So you ask yourself, "Why do they not perform as they should? Why can I not overclock the card at all?" It may be your lack of power! One possible solution for your problem could be the Ultra X3 1000 watt modular power supply. Boasting such features as Active PFC, Flex Force cabling, modular design, 70 amp 12v rail, and a 135mm cooling fan, it has all the makings of a beast of a power supply.

The box that houses this power supply reaches out and grabs you with the bright, blood-red coloring. The product's name and wattage are listed prominently on the front and rear of the box. After flipping up the lid on top of the box, the power supply and its specifications are listed.
Now that we are able to take a look inside, let's see what we have. The cables are packaged in an accessory box that rests on tom of the power supply and its foam protection. The power supply itself is wrapped in plastic and encased in foam blocks to prevent any damage during shipping.
