The thubans also use a relatively high amount of power, even if he had a quad core or a dual it still wouldn't have much room for more hardware later on.
It was faulty. The fact that it smoked proves it was faulty (it should just shut down if overworked). It is a fact that 650w is more than enough for SLI'd GTX 460's (LinX + Furmark included, but who runs these two programs together 24/7 anyway?).

If you disagree then you don't really know what you're talking about, sorry.
