Is this a good p/s for my rig? It claims to have 3-12v rails ...but they are each only 17a.I have seen 12v rails with upwards of 25a.I am assuming that since my 6800 will be alone on a 12v rail that 17a will suffice.Does anyone really understand these voltage requirements,will it supply more than sufficient power? I bought it for $50 Canadian,so it was a good deal.

I am a fan of the Neo HE. The 550W version had no problem keeping up with the system below, replacing the GTX with 7800GTs in SLI. You are good to go...

3 17A 12v rails would be plenty for most setups currently. Not a 8800GTX SLI setup, but anything else, yeah.
