having a 'hybred' PSU is nothing new.
Zalman had their 'hybred' XT line of PSUs a few years back. good PSUs but rather expensive. I think theyve more or less been discontinued now as google turns up only a handful of retailers when. the wattage only went up to 770w and the currently priced at £132 for that particular model. my Corsair 1050w Pro was a tad more expensive. but i get 280w more for the price i pay
