Introduction

So you go out and buy the best CPU, Hard Drive, Memory and Video card out there but have you ever wondered what makes all these devices work at its optimum levels? Well if you hadn’t given it much thought, it’s your power supply. That’s right, that measly looking metal case which powers your whole system has a lot to do with how your system performs end of the day when you require hardcore performance out of your PC. A power supply can make or break how well your system performs, so choosing the right one is as important as other system components to ensure a good stable system.

Power supplies have come a long way considering what used to be offered in the past. Today you will see many power supplies that come with the statement SLI certified or Cross Fire certified. This means that nVidia and ATI respectively have tested these power supplies on their test beds and have certified them to be of standard. However don’t consider this as gospel for a good PSU but consider it as an added benefit.

(Update 25th May 2007): We recevied the following document from Nanopoint which shows the AMD crossfire certification and their testing procedures used. Click here)

Today we bring to you one goliath of a power supply by Nanopoint the TAGAN 2-Force II 900W Power supply (TG900-U33 (900W)). This PSU has enough power up its sleeve to power the most powerful systems you can get your hands on in today’s market.

TAGAN PSU units have gained much popularity in the recent months for their outstanding performance so we can’t wait to see how their newest model the 2 Force II series performs. If you haven’t heard of Nanopoint, the manufacturer of TAGAN PSU’s here’s a blurb off their website.
