So single 12V is better than dual 12V for overclocking?

How many watts?

You told me to get the OCZ 520W which does not have dual 12V and then you linked me to the OCZ 600W which does. Do you mean get the 600W?

you can get either one, depends on your budget, i see no big difference between the dual 12V cause i dont really care, as long as i get +12V on my 12V line lol. you can get either one, didnt know how muich money you got, or how much you want to spend.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'm going to go with a Seasonic S-12 600W. Tomshardware did a big PSU test recently where the ran 19 PSU at full load constantly for 6 weeks and thier thier pick aftarwards for a high wattage PSU was the Seasonic S-12-600. It had the highest efficiency and was the quietest in its class. They picked it even over the PCP&C 510 so it has to be good.
