Yeah, except that I have this 1kW PSU because it has a lifetime warranty, is the size of smaller PSUs, is extremely high quality, and has a very nice modular interface, costs little more than many lower-output PSUs, plus it is quiet all things considered. It is probably also more efficient than your PSU. I also wanted to make sure that my PSU would be capable of doing multi-GPU setups in the future, with 300W cards.

Simply put, there is a difference between owning a 1000W PSU and a 1600W PSU. One is high end, while the other is overkilling overkill.

Most of us should know that Ultra brand PSUs just plain out suck.

Most of us then know more than you.... go read reviews of their recent PSU. Here's just one: http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_details.php?id=103




Random bit of info.... a 1000w PSU is more efficient than a 1600w in almost all cases. PSU efficiency varies. Generally, peak efficiency is occurs when there is 40-80% max load. Most highend system use really only 500-600w.

Do what you want... as for me, i am never going to put a Ultra band PSU in my computer. Have you not read the reviews on the older 600-700w versions of this? They are utter crap. Besides, i don't even need a 1600w PSU.

So according to your logic, just because a company makes a crappy game, means all their games are crappy?

Haha. Get real.

Just because Ultras first PSUs were bad doesn't mean their new ones are. Modular was a brand new technology, of course it was buggy at first. Almost everything is buggy at first. If you took some time and read about the X3s you would see they are scoring very high on the reviews.

Honestly... 1600w is just complete overkill... The electricity bill would be huge... All the trees and plants within a 5 mile radius will die thanks to its monsterous power consumption.....

There are quad sli certified 850w PSU's.... No-One needs this much.... Lets kill the earth some more....

A 1600W PSU will have the same power bill as a 300W if connected to a computer that only needs 250W. It only uses the power it needs, and no computer will use the full 1600W. Its just more future proof for when a computer actually needs to power.

If you hook a top of the line computer up to that it will only be using around 700W during full load, and on idle it will only be using like 300W.

So yea.. hooking a top of the line computer up to a 1600W or a 850W uses the exact same ammount of power for the time being.
