Question Next big thing?

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE ODIN GE-S550A-D1 ATX12V / EPS12V 550W Power Supply Software Control 100 - 240 V RoHS, TUV, CE, FCC, cUL - Retail From the reviews and gigabyte's page, this thing looks like a beast. Question is, worth 150 bucks?

ooo...That's a lot of amps. The SeaSonic S12 550W though, is $20 cheaper, and has the same amount of wattage and amps.

True, but read up on the specs. This one comes with software that lets you monitor and set alarms. Tomshardware has a review of it on the front page. Looks pretty sweet.

Actually for the same price, I'd rather get a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610w.

It a "standard" choice for a "regular" rig: c2d, 8800gt*, 2gb+, etc.
