Frankly Watts are nothing. There are 500 W psu out there with 60% efficiency and 12A on the 12V rail.

Which would get Killed by A good Antec 330 truepower,

If yours has 18A, you're fine buddy.
-Intel Core2 Duo 4300 (3.0GHz) | Asus P5N-E SLI | 6GB Corsair CVS PC2-5300 | GF8800GT 512MB | Western Digital 1TB Raid0 | Antec SLK2600AMB | Antec Earthwatts 500W
-Intel Pentium4 2.4C (3.4GHz) | Asus P4P800 Dlx | 2GB Crucial Rendition PC-3200 | GF6800LE 128MB | Seagate 200GB | Antec Overture II | Antec TruePower 2.0 480W

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

You sure? You know, my SPI supply's power stats are
3.3V - 28A
5V - 30A
12V - 18A
if you do some calculations, my PSU has a max output of 450+W (way more than 300W max it says) but I did those power calculator things and they say I need 350W min.
Plus my AMD64 takes 89W out of that 12V... I dunno
More info on the Amps thing plz. Thx

I am running an Enermax (Quality) 350W power supply slaving away at a 160 GB, 80 GB, and two 40 GB HD's including my Gigabyte 6800GT overclocked to 406/1100 and my AMD A64 3200+ overclocked to 2.2 GHz.

This power supply is amazing!
