And I am just now realizing this only has one 12v rail...WOW I am an idiot...I need at least two right?
Single rail is fine.
Nice unit for the price.

Later, I will read the posts here about 12v rails to better understand. My stomach dropped when I saw that was a single rail unit. I really hope it will be ok for my system/overclocking.

EDIT: OK I think I understand...

Yesterday, I spent a significant amount of time looking for a decently priced PSU that would work. And while it seems that it will work, since I only have a 450w system...I somehow manage to find a better option after I already placed my order.

The Antec Earthwatts EA-650 would probably have been the better option for similar price. Contemplating if I should order the EA-650 and send the single rail unit back upon arrival.

TBH, you're better off with a single rail unit. You won't have to load balance. Both units are Seasonic based, so they're of the same quality.

650w is imo the absolute lowest you should go. I'd say get a solid 750w-850w to make headroom for an inevitable SB/IB/BD/x upgrade and/or SLi/CF in the future.

He's working within a budget. 750 on up will almost double the price for a decent unit.

C'mon Scotty you could lend the OP the impulse engine.

Seems like love - hate feelings about Single versus Multi-railed 12v with many people. Plenty of conflict though there's much written about this in this URL because there's pros and cons to both I guess.

Would be cool to create a thread poll on peoples preferences about this.

I need warp drive in 10 seconds or we're all dead.

Seriously, I have no preference to single or multi rail. The only time multi rail could present a problem is under extreme situations with multiple (more than 2) highend vid cards, and even then as long as you have common sense and balance the load across the rails, there will be no problem. Assuming of course you have enough PSU to start with.

I don't plan on doing SLI. I only game @ 1440x900 resolution anyway. The only upgrade I could see in my future would be maybe replacing my e8400 with a core 2 quad. Would that psu be enough to handle the upgrade? (given that my PC is about 460 watts with my current setup)
