my crappy antec smart power 500 which has dual rails, when it crapped out, it only took a bit of my mobo (mobo works but doesn't read my temps correctly anymore) and hdd, but the test of my system stayed in tact.. so i would believe that chewy is right about multi rail psu's not taking out the whole system, which may help especcially if you have a expensive system...
Yes, yes, more info, more confusion, goes hand in hand i think....
we'll, i guess, i'm gonna have to really research late tonight.... got to go out n ride my bike now.
So dual rails.... I heard someone say at newegg, that his single rial psu wouldn't work with his 8800gtx...makes no sense how a compnay trying to sell psu, would make one that wouldn't work with most pop. video card......hmmm....i hate computers!!!!!!
