    Any GOLD rated PSU is a good buy.

    Out of curiosity, what components do you wish to power with the PSU? There's always a better deal.

    I found some unpleasant review of Thermaltake TR2 80 Plus Gold. So I bought Antec TP 750 80 Plus Bronze. Thanks for your reply.

    Here's a review, and I see nothing but praise in it.

    A Bronze PSU over a Gold rated PSU? I guess StarTech's salesmen have gotten you suckered good.

    I would just stay away from thermaltake all together. Buy from Corsair, Antec or seasonic. Another consideration would be getting the right size psu. 700 is a bit overkill for single GPU. 600 ish would be enough. Ideally you want to run the psu at its sweet spot where your load falls within the psu max efficiency range.

    I've been using TR2 80 plus bronze psu (500W for i5-6500/gtx 970) for over a year now- had no issue whatsoever. Can't really see the gold rated one being worse by any means
