    I'm not sure what point you are trying to make. It's pulling 600 from the wall much less power is actually being used by the system. Potential output of the power supply is 850 watts maximum, at 80% efficiency(just a number) it would pull 1060 or so from the wall. So in this review the actual components are only requiring 480 watts. Efficiency is calculated as DC output/AC input *100.

    Hopefully this is what you were trying to say.

    Man, my rig doesnt even pull 500watts @ load and o/c'ed. I purchased a 1000watt unit for future proofing and also the ease of mind that my PSU would be the last thing I would need to worry about when upgrading again.

    Hey guys, I have a problem, the Antec 1200 tpq is a "special order"... which means I won't be able to get until the website re-supplies it...

    So I need you guys to find me the best ~1000w PSU that I can get for about 200$ to max 230$...

    I need the PSU to provide for these:

    -I have 2x 6950 crossfire
    -I like modular cables (even all modular PSUs...) very handy for cable management...
    -Good Amperage
    -Good Power Efficiency

    Oh and btw, there are some REALLY bad reviews for the antec tpq 1200 here:

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...71039&cm_re=antec_1200-_-17-371-039-_-Product

    I guess these guys were just unlucky
