If this is an in depth guide then where is the section that talks about amperage? This is the most important thing...

Not a single word mentioning amperage: no sticky.

A guide for nubs... i think you guys take it to seriously. I bet you £10000000 i could buy any 600W PSU and it would run all of your systems.

If your talking to a nub do you want to be chatting to them about amperage, when they don't even know wether this or this is a good make.
