Personally, if i win, i will give it to my girlfriend for her next build. she have already some pieces, like a case, some RAM, my old GTX 460. We are also student, so we don't have much money. So, it would be awesome if i can win for her.
Personally, i already have a Seasonic S12D 850W, so, i don't really need of a new power supply. It's for that if i win, i will give it to her (that and the fact that will be to complicated to destroy my present cable management...).

Oups, I forgot i had a account here...

well I have been slowly buying and replacing all of my Psupplys with Seasonic S12II series 300watt-to-500 watt they are easily some of the best psupplys I have run over the years. to MANY pros to list...Cons..one of them came with a buzz turns out that it was a bit of the cable plastic webbing touch the very silent fan..(side cutters fixed that in 2 secs) So it would be great to replace the Naxn in my Rendering/Testing server...which would be a matching set and Quite.

Love the Seasonics..

Put either one of those PSUs into my current i5 system, which I'm sure is a bit on the edge. Could pick up a cheap 460 and SLI it. More importantly I could move my current PSU into a system that is underpowered a bit by the lack of a 24-pin power connector. Only half of the ram works due to this and the system is a bit unstable.

With a brand new high quality Seasonic PSU, I would replace the 5-year old PSU in my gaming machine and play racing games until my eyeballs fall out of my head.

February 12, 2013 | 04:23 PM - Posted by MarixD (not verified)

This would make it one less item that I need to buy for the computer I will be building soon.

February 12, 2013 | 06:00 PM - Posted by J35T3R (not verified)

Definitely will allow me to SLI GTX 670s for some sweet sweet Hawken and Planetside 2 action!

February 12, 2013 | 07:24 PM - Posted by icebug

My girlfriends gaming rig wouldn't cause me constant fear that the PSU will blow out and leave her gameless...

February 12, 2013 | 07:25 PM - Posted by xabbott (not verified)

I'd be able to sli.

February 12, 2013 | 07:26 PM - Posted by snowbound999

WOuld be able to use a better video card.

February 12, 2013 | 07:38 PM - Posted by klatch

If i won this I'd probably have to upgarde my video card in order to make sure I'm using the psu to its full potential.

February 12, 2013 | 07:48 PM - Posted by vailr

A new Seasonic PSU for my Z77 Hackintosh. Thanks!

With one of these Seasonic PSUs, I could help a friend replace a couple old AMD Athlon X2 systems he and his wife use to game together. He wants to go with a Rosewill PSU. I say nay nay!

February 12, 2013 | 10:12 PM - Posted by Farmboy24 (not verified)

It would allow me to upgrade my 6 yr old system.

February 13, 2013 | 01:07 AM - Posted by dex3108

With new PSU i would be able to upgrade my graphic card.

Well, it's winter here at North Pole - no, Finland, actually. Maybe one of these supplies would be powerful enough to generate some much needed heat by my computer desk. Keeping my fingers warm would greatly enhance my computing experience by reducing the amount of typos.

Just lost a computer every thing fried. This PS looks good.

February 13, 2013 | 08:08 AM - Posted by Kvarun (not verified)

I'd replace the PSU in my system, the fan is making funny noises :/

February 13, 2013 | 12:28 PM - Posted by Simon Larsen (not verified)

I would give it away to my friend who is saving up hard earned money to replace his 5 year old worn out rig, so that he would be able to get it sooner :)

I would be able to have a PCI-E, 8 Pin EPS 12V and TRUE POWER to power up my upcoming upgrades like High End Graphics card and High End Motherboad. My Current PSU is a cheap 600w (which is rated only 200 - 300w in my research). So for this I would really really wanted to have a Power Supply that delivers true power! I'm also using a on-board graphics chip.

I would replace my old PSU and upgrade my videocard. Thanks for the chance!

I loved my PSU. When we met with him, i'm understand - IT'S HE! He had been beautiful, fast, and powerful. But time is walking. I'm growing up and he get old. Once, i saw the new biggest, fastest and powerfuly PSU. On his shining side i saw a 8 big letters - Seasonic. His appearance told me, that he wants be with me many years. I'm understand that we made for each other. He's my love for ages!
