  1. does anyone know of a cheap and efficient PSU that has a 12V rail of 30A or more. i plan on buying an ati radeon X1950 Pro. it requires me to have a 12V rail of 30A or more. o it has to be more than 450W also. help would be appreciated.

    I run an Ultra XFinity 600 watt $69 PSU. It has 2 12 volt rails. One of the 12v rails=20 amps, the other=18 amps. Total:=38 amps. My 8800 GTS requires no less than 26 amps and this PSU never misses a beat.

    read tomshardware.com and their 2005/2006 psu torture test of over 27 psus. go cheap and you'll wind up with serious issues.
