The OCZ 700W GameXStream PSU

The OCZ GameXStream product line is geared directly toward enthusiasts, power users, and gamers. As more and more gamers move to SLI and Crossfire, the need for power supplies like the GameXStream increases greatly. The GameXStream features high-quality components to ensure your PC?s vital hardware is supplied with clean, stable and reliable power without compromising effectiveness. And like the Antec NeoHE, the GameXStream is built with high-efficient components!

Unique Features

High Efficiency: The OCZ GameXStream stands next to the Antec Neo HE when it comes to efficiency. This means lower overall power consumption when compared to typical PSUs, so the GameXStream is another one that will save you money in the long run.

Quad +12V Rails: Interestingly enough, OCZ is not really advertising this feature. But with one quick glance at the PSU label, we noticed that the GameXStream also features four +12V rails for improved load balancing.

Pricing

The GameXStream is typically found a little cheaper than its PowerStream sibling (most likely due to the adjustable voltage rails found on the PowerStream). The GameXStream can easily be found for $159.99 and with a little shopping around, we found a few $15 mail in rebates online. This puts the GameXStream a little higher than average when it comes to pricing, but definitely not overpriced.
