Antec TP750 is a very good PSU, also 80+ bronze certified.
And as you have said that it is out of stock, look for Corsair TX750V2.

i just thought you're in Manila, anyways... i searched but there's seems nobody else in TipidPC sells the Antec TP750 except PChub.
stretch your budget a bit more then get the corsair TX750 @ PHP 5,750 + shipping, best option IMO.

try to ask PCNetmiles if they can ship it for you. although Dynaquest has the TX750 but they have the V2 which is the non-modular ones afaik.
PCNetmiles have the TX750M series which is the half-modular model, both sellers offers the same price btw...go check it out.

edit:

it's non- modular with PCNetmiles, but it looks Dynaquest has the V2... oops :P

Seems like the Antec TP-750 is your only viable option since I can't find other 'quality' products available that's within your price range.
I won't say I'm recommending this but it's 80+ Gold, 700W, cost PHP 4400 and is suppose to have 5 years warranty (check first)
FSP Aurum 700
I have the Epsilon 88+ made by the same manufacturer and it hasn't failed me till today (used it on two different rigs). FSP is a well known brand for providing OEMs. When they manufacture "quality" products, they do it with a BANG but when they manufacture faulty ones, they just plain SUCK. Would you want to take part in the lottery? Your call..

As long as you've confirmed it's this unit and it's valid warranty, go with it.
Although it's supposed to be deactivated now and replaced with the newer 80+ Bronze TX650V2, it should be fine as long as it's still covered by warranty.

You ended up from 600W to 950W Lolz...
Great find though with that kind of price. With that PSU, might as well start looking for a second, and probably third, GTX570 :lol:

kinda funny hehehe.. everyone suggested like the corsair is the ultimate psu and to be satisfied with my purchase i have to find a 750w corsair for future "SLI thingy" but i saw the tx950 instead cheaper than the 750 v2 there was no way this will slip on my hands! :rofl:
