    but if u look at specs they are exactly the same the only thing that has changed is they changed the number 6 to the number 7 and added 30 bucks to the price tag but all the amperages are the same and everything

    so as far as the 4 12v rails with only 15 amps on each will be fine then right? what exactly is the big difference between having 1,2, or even 4 12v rails anyway i know its something to do with like ripple or whatever but whats the actual idea behind it? and is it really even needed?

    The idea behind the separate rails is like the electrical circuits in your house. If the microwave in the kitchen is running at full load it doesn't effect the TV in the family room, separate circuts.

    The 15amp 12v rails should be good, thats a total of 60amps on the 12v side. The PSU is 'nVIDIA SLI Certified' so it meets a certain strict standard. I like the FSP unit.

    Here's some more good PSU

    Here's a good read and test on PSU

    I like where you're giong with thoughts on the PSU, I think the PSU is one of if not the most important part of the PC.

    exactly because if you have a sucky psu then you can either 1 fry everything in your computer or 2 have a dead computer cause the thing wont turn on for lack of power so its better to have more then eough rather then skimp on it and hope it gets you by also dont get me wrong but in todays computers isnt the 12v rail the one that matters most im a bit blah right now because of the 5 hours of sleep i got last night, school this mornin, liftin afterwords, then work so i cant really think straight right now
