no crap, i don't understand why they keep making larger and larger PSU's....i mean the average system power consumption hasn't really increased at all, even on the enthusiast end where u could xfire the X1950XTX. I suppose the idea of 3-way SLI and up to 4x xfire could call for an increase, especially if you were 4x xfiring HD 4890's.
Now about all the CPU's, i'm assuming AMD is simply going to stop the retailing of current athlon x2's, cause this is a huge line up they have coming here, and i dont know how all of those CPU's would fit in the market without AMD competing with itself, hence i would think they're going to end their current athlong x2 retailing.
