Your electricity is measured by the KW/H right? I would hate to know how much it is costing me to play Oblivion per hour with a 1KW PSU.
You only pay for how much you use, and your PSU only pulls what is needed for the components (It actually pulls more than they need because of the efficiency thing, the extra is lost as heat). So a 700W PSU won't cost you any more than a 500W PSU because they will both be doing the same amount of work, assuming they are powering the same system.

The next step up from 34A for Forton is straight to the $113 550W
version that has 4 x 15A on the 12v rails, so 60A total.
