The combined +12v ratings are pretty nice, but I can't say I'm overly impressed with 30A on the +5 and +3.3 lines. For what they're probably going to charge, you can surely do better and save some cash.

That begs the question... "With increasing innovation in the industry: Are PCs getting more and more expensive to run?" :confused:
I wouldn't worry too much. This kind of hardware exists simply because it can, not because it serves any useful purpose to the individual. There will still be plenty of reasonably-priced and specced components. :D

What he said.

And it's been cheap for a while now, thank goodness. I remember my mom paying $2,500 for a 486DX/50 with a crappy monitor and 8megs of memory. Now you can get a "top of the line" Dell w/19" flat panel for under a grand. Amazing really how much cheaper MOST things are. Video cards are about the only thing that has gone up (significantly) in price.

Wow, what an overkill. And most of the home UPS can't even backup it. Also, I bet that the PCPnC 850 (which, thankfully, my UPS CAN backup) is much better.

Theres no doubt in my mind the PCPC 850 is a better overall PSU. They usually have rails that are much more stable.

But if they are only chewing up 400w (not gaming at the time or folding work units) or so at most then most home UPS should keep the system up for 8-10 minutes.

WOW! i guess this PSU will be ready for Quad 7800Us all at once :D

hopefully with the release of the increased wattege capable PSUs , the price for the lower ones decreases (400W+ etc..)

I'll wait for the PSU that can put out a maximum of 1.21 gigawatts. :D

True, not to mention the quality of the parts, efficiency, and the minimized fluctuation. Also, no one can compete with the factory mods and the customer support! (Well, ALMOST no one, except OCZ).

Have you tried to hook up your computer to the Major Office clock when the storm starts? :p

I am just getting a PC P&C 510 SLi myself. That thing was approved for dual 6800 ultras and high end AMD CPUs. Believe it or not dual 6800 ultras and a FX 55 and up would draw more than what I have in my sig.

PC P&C's 510 has the same peak as many 550s and up(660). I also like the fact that they focus their claims on sustained|continuous output.

I figure if I can afford the dual cards and cpu I can spring for the PSU. It should be plenty for what I have.

Not to mention my old PSU had a 20 pin connector which required a 20 to 24 pin adapter to use on this mobo, and IMO they aren't worth the risk.

to run? probably not, but to purchase/upgrade? definitely
