Arent they perfect and yes if you want extream performance go with a PC power & cooling psu those thing are insane
number 1 choice (8800gtx sli capable 60 amps on the 12 rail = insane) PC power & cooling
(its not the espilion i think, but its similar)
OCZ 's 700watt 1
600watt 1

These are suggested psu's with alot of head room for more

Longitivity? I guess it depends on the PSU's rating and under what temps the power is being output. That AKASA has a 75% efficiency which is not bad but definitely, adding a dedicated PSU for the video card will be a great idea if you don't plan on ditching that PSU.

That should even take the work load completely off the PSU from powering the video card at all and it'll probably have a lot less stress then.
