How Much Is Too Much?

Hey guys, I thought this was an interesting read, on how having giant PSUs...like those 1k+W PSUs, have an effect, on the electric current, running through our homes.

Yeah this is why I went with a nice solid PSU with a high efficiency rating.

My thermaltake toughpower has over 85% efficiency...and some of the more powerful ones are nearly 90% efficient.
