So which one at the store will be quietest?
multi rail is the cheaper least desirable method.

Most high quality high efficienty PSU use single rail. with single rail you never have to worry about overloading one of the rails, or trying to determine which cables to use to have sufficient amount of power to your equipment. it wasn't such a huge problem before, but as video cards and other components require more and more power this issue will happen more often.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
