The XFX power supply would go on my test bench. So multiple types of hardware would be powered by it. Intel/AMD motherboards, nVidia/AMD video cards. Varying amounts of RAM from 4 - 16Gb, SSD and/or mechanical hard drives.

The XFX PSU would either go to the build i am planning for my dad or to my friends build, or if i feel selfish i might sell it to buy an backup drive.

If I won I'd end up putting the XFX PSU into the HTPC. The one in there now is a bit too anemic to run the GTX 260 I have waiting to go into it. :P

I will use the PSU in my half built system

it will be for watching hulu and crunchyroll and sometimes funimation.com or animenetwork

because googletv products do not get hulu and I am tired of plugging in my Mac laptop (it has it's own workstation)

also the roku does not do 720p for crunchyroll which annoys me

 

system specs:

 

old phenom II X3 720

mini ATX board

DDR2

Gigabyte 5450

iogear wireless keyboard with track ball

 

I have an XFX graphic card in my main gaming rig but it is powered by a corsair PSU
