If you're in need of one or the other, you've come to the right place, as today's deals are nothing but PSUs and panels. It starts with today's top deal for a Corsair 1000W RM Series Modular Power Supply for $160 with free shipping (normally $180 - use coupon code: [EMCPCHH42]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).
