    850w is overkill for most people. Only those do 3+ multi gpu setups need more, and 1000w is enough.

    With efficiency increasing, PSUs do not need to get bigger than they are.

    No one needs 1300w+ PSU. This is just marketing hype at it's worst.

    I am sure there are people who could make use of a nearly 1500 watt psu.

    I have a kill-o-watt meter. Have my i7 920 system plugged into it.

    CPU clocked at 3.8 GHz and HD 6950 at 900/1400 using HX 650 PSU.

    Doesn't even hit 400w at high usage. I feel confident I could add a 2nd 6950 using the same 650w PSU. But it certainly wouldn't need 850w.

    Maybe there are such people, but they are very few and far between.

    It would be interesting to see how much power they actually draw from the wall.

    Keep in mind PSU's are designed to have their highest effiency at around 50% use so 750 watt's really isn't an unfeasible load at all, also if your pulling 400+ watts from a 650 watt, your likely getting vdroop and leak like crazy.

    Yeah, the highest is at 50%. That doesn't mean you can't draw more than that.

    Mine is 80 Plus Bronze, so while I'm not getting 85% I'm still getting at least 82%.

    The 80 Plus standard means that they maintain 80-90% efficiency even at 100% load.

    Though I would avoid actually doing that, buying a PSU with twice the load you need is not necessary.

    So true and with todays hardware it's not that hard to hit 750w. Hence why i got a 750w my system is around 180w-380w usage.

    I know a lot of people who will never use a second card, myself included, because there is no practical benefit from it given the issues that linger with those setups. So it'd be damn hard to hit the efficiency sweat spot on such a high powered unit. I can't believe we get 500 watt and 1300 watt platinum units before the ones people actually want to buy, the 650-850 units.

    what is the point of these useless posts from mainly alot of people i haven't seen before commenting on how people will never use a high wattage psu, pfft tell that to Fitseries....lol

    these are aimed at enthusiasts and adventurous builds, dam i have a 1200watt psu, purely because i will never overload it or stress it and it came in handy for when i ran 4 5870's on it for benching....... and its a dam good unit!
    plus my normal systems runs 6 hardrives, 2 5870's and a very large waterloop so i like the head room.

    if you are never going to buy a second card then agreed don't buy one, BUT there is a large amount of enthusiasts and 'benches' that need this power, alot are members here lol!.

    sweet spots on psu's are also irrelevant, as if you buy the right one they will serve you well at all voltages, thats what '80+' certifications and reviews are for. i know they exist but we are talking high end psu's not cheep crap, so i can assume they are all 80+ certificated.

    Also the output max of a psu has nothing to do with the price of your bill as ALL psus are power switching these days.
