For a better technical over view of PSUs and active PFC , try the link below and read about "Myths" and "Terminology".

FWIW, if ATI's PSU program is like Nvidia's, it's a waste of time IMO and can actually endorse or approve marginal PSU's that aren't good choices for most PCs.

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.

All these PSUs from endorsed companies are really overpriced... I run currently on a Sansun 550w modular... It takes an overclocked 805d and 2 volt modded 7900gts just fine...
