You take an old 1950xt/pro/2600XT and a cheapo brand 500-600w 3x16a or 4x16a psu and boom biggrin.gif

I know multirail tech came far and if it's a good brand, it's cool. But i still have my doubts. Especially when I see "700watts but 4x20a rails"
The problem was,as stated in your link,with how the rails were split and what fed what biggrin.gif It's mostly ok now because the multirail boundaries are bleak, most units combine rails to act like a single rail even if it's not advertised biggrin.gif But if you plan SLI/xfire you are still pushing multirail tech.

You didn't read the link I posted as you shouldn't be calling them rails.

Doesn't matter end of story.
