I said I'll be using Newegg as reference, since it's easier to find stuff on there. But I am aware that The Egg doesn't carry certain brands, so those I would have to list from other vendors.

Just link to the manufactor's webpage... let the buyer find his own source.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

Keep it with newegg. Newegg lists all specs and has a guide price.

Just because he links to newegg doesn't mean you have to buy from newegg. Geez - you people are like sheep

At this point in time, I wouldn't touch a Tagan.

Myself, in order of preference:

1. PC Power & Cooling
2. Zippy
3. Silverstone
4. OCZ/FSP
5. (for budget builds) Thermaltake

Some people live on this earth to do great things... Unfortunately, most are here simply because it's illegal to kill them.

I disagree... DuckieHo has the right idea. Newegg has a great selection, and their search features are second to none for enthusiast reseller sites, but they don't necessarily carry every brand, nor every model that may be of interest.

Newegg does NOT list all specs. When looking at PSUs, I need to know rail layout and this information is never provided by Newegg.

Ok, the list is alot more complete now, having added OCZ, FSP, and many more brands.

It's not done yet, but it's coming along !

Glad your sticking to your guns.
Neweggs power supply pricing doesn't seem to be as competitive as their other components to me and their selection is by no means comprehensive.

Good job and rep +1 to ya!
