    If game/hardware requirements keep going up like this, maybe I should just buy a cheap laptop and get my computer fun off of www.addictinggames.com :p.

    lol 117 on 12v rail... damn right thats overkill, but hey, it may come in handy when using peltiers on your setup, and being able to run em on the installed psu

    wow, you would need like 5 hdds, 5 dvd drives, 2 hd2900xt cards, watercooling, umm quad core, 8gbs or ram, some kick ass mobo, wow, even that wouldn't be enough to even come close to the amount of power that thing has

    Ok, whoever thinks that this is an ecofriendly powersupply needs a tree jamming up there ass just for being damn ignorant. This is getting kind of silly, i mean i couldnt see the most current high end system needing this much power.

    Even with all the high-end parts on the market sucking up more juice than ever before, I simply can't see a use for a monster like that.

    Overkill, period. :cool:

    totally agree, overkill.

    edit:

    "is 1600 watts enough?"
    "No, i think you need 1601 watts"

    I wonder if systems will ever need that much power. I've heard that power requirements are supposed to start going down after the G90s and R700s, but who knows. I miss the days when 300 watts was overkill.

    well i think 1000w is insane but oh no, i gotta beat the "jones" next door with the new "1600w"

    thats what this is imo, just something to brag about "i got 1600 watt psu" oh yeah, your a rich sob who's daddy buys you whatever the fuck you want! so thats my honest opinion of this

    but only if i don't hafta pay for it, lol
     
  25. there are forums for the eco friendly, do me a favor, don't disgust me and many other tpu browser's with your tree hugging bullshit. if you don't need 1600 watts, then don't buy it, some people actually could use it, i could replace half the psu's in my network server's with these and actually save a bit of money and save some of your precious f*cking tree's. So why don't you take that tree and shove it up your own ass. thanks \wristkthx
