SilverStone ST1000 1000w

Hi,I just made an order from pcmaniacs for the Thermaltake Armor+ Silver and the SilverStone ST1000 1000w Modular power supply,I am a bit worried I might of picked the wrong power supply,this is the one I just ordered here http://pcmaniacs.com.au/silverstone-...dy-p-4126.html but after reading some customer reviews on this site http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256020 I notist some people are saying that it didn't have enough power to power there 8800GTX card,and one person said that there is actually two models of the SilverStone ST1000,there is also an SilverStone ST1000-NV as one person said he had the ST1000 but had to swap it for the ST1000-NV

(Need the ST1000-NV
Pros: Plenty of power, silent, modular. At first I had the ST1000 from Newegg and had to do an exchange with the manufacturer for the ST1000-NV. The ST1000 powers a 8800 card, but it under volts it, not allowing enough power to actually use the card. Once I got the new one in, it worked great. Modular connections are easy to use and the cords are well made.)

Does anyone one know which model the one pcmaniacs have out of the ST1000 or ST1000-NV on the pcmaniacs site it does say SilverStone ST1000 1000w Modular PSU SLI Ready but doesn't mention the -NV at the end on ST1000,should I be looking at changing this to another PSU,need enough power to run SLI 9800GTX or GTX 280 cards when they get released.

Re: SilverStone ST1000 1000w

Not sure... probably best to email Rex at pcmaniacs to ask for specifics.

I would of chosen one of these instead

Silverstone DA850W http://pcmaniacs.com.au/silverstone-...ar-p-3740.html
Silverstone OP1000 http://pcmaniacs.com.au/silverstone-...0w-p-3369.html

Or http://pcmaniacs.com.au/coolermaster...li-p-3820.html or http://pcmaniacs.com.au/antec-truepo...ar-p-4129.html

Thanks for that,I just emailed Rex at pcmaniacs and asked him if he could changed my ST1000 power supply to the SilverStone OP1000 1000w,I really wanted Modular but I spose makeing sure the psu has enough power should have priority over looks,all those wires probably won't stand out as much in a big case like the Thermaltake Armor+ anyway.
