As the review I did a couple years ago shows, the 650W isn't very efficient, mediocre regulation, only 456W on the +12V. So if you could get a more efficient PSU with 456W+ on the +12V rail for $50, I don't blame you for passing on the BFG. It does hold up in the long haul, I've found. And I guess that's why BFG felt OK with giving it a lifetime warranty.
The 800W actually has 768W on the +12V, not 648W. That was a typo. But don't take my word for it. Check out Gabe's review. He put 63A on the +12V rail and it actually ran fine until the temperatures hit 57Â°C (an unrealisticly high temperature). It's also not very loud because there are two 80MM fans and they actually spin at very low RPM. That is, until it's under some loud then the fans do kick in. I wish the inside kicked in first because it's harder to hear, but like shinji2k said, these units were designed/released a good year before I started working for BFG.
