At this point, no average consumer needs 1200W of power. I don't think we'll ever be required for that much power anyway. Like I said before, we're heading towards low power consumption. Not higher. Processor dies of the GPU and CPU are getting smaller, leading to less power needed.

I might actually consider that though...

heh, if your reffering to me about reading them, yeh I actually try to do some research with my own PC :P, but I tend to post a thread and research at the same time, since most of the time review sites tend to have different views of a good product rather then what a normal consumer/oc'er/gamer would think, plus wording in the PSU reviews aren't too noob friendly

and i thank you for that

but as said b4 a pc power and cooling 610 silencer is awesome... its got some major amperage on dual 12V rails...

but if u watch any 3dgameman review for a Power Supply.. he explains wattages and rails very well...

i'm not recommending this but his explanation is there:

PC P&C power supplies don't have dual +12v rails. They're known for their powerful single rails.

But I love watching 3Dgameman's reviews. Especially the bloopers. He does give a good explanation, easy enough for beginners to understand.
