Do you see how I have six hard drives in my tower? I also have a 80gb drive in an external case attached by usb. With the fans in there as well I use alot of power. I have hard drive fans on my two sata drives, 8 quiet case fans, and a fan bay controler. I put the fans on one psu, so i can turn the fans off at night and have the system still running. I did try to run this all on the 400w, and i was getting graphic card problem, where the card didnt have enough power, 550w wasnt enough for everything, but it is enough for all the hardware.
I also oc my cpu up a tad from the 2.2ghz equivlant to 3200+. So I find that I need and use the power from both psu's.
If you tell me that with a psu calculator, i shouldnt need these two psu, those calculators are not accurate.
