How come they don't put solid caps on it?

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Looks like there's going to be a major show down of the dual dual-gpu setups.

I have a feeling 2 X2s might just edge past 2 9800 GX2s.
GPU: MSI GTX 260 @ 650MHz/1175MHz
CPU: Intel E6750 @ 3.4GHz/1.33v/60c
HSF: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
SND: Creative Audigy 4
SPK:Logtech X-540s
MOS: Logitech MX600 Wireless Laser
