And we where talking about how they boast SLI/Xfire setups when the top wattage they have is 700watt. I dont think it would handle an OCed quad, OCed 9800GX2, 4gig of ram, and a few HDs in RAID all that well.
my power meter disagrees with you. My system(S) use less than 350W - my other rig has almost the same specs, except with an 8800GTX.
you've simply fallen intro a trap with thinking you need massive PSU's... you dont. as was said by sneeky, wizzard reviewed a 4870x2 on an OCZ 700W - you think he'd notice PSU issues, eh?
