Well if youre willing to spend $1300 on two 8800GTXs in SLI, this is the only single PSU that can handle them. Its about the same price for a high-wattage PSU + a drive bay PSU.

Well.. <a href="http://www.pcpower.com/products/viewproduct.php?show=S75EPS" target="_blank">PC Power & Cooling Silencer</a> is $199, boasting 60A on a single rail (difference is only 12A)<br><br>
and the <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817104019" target="_blank">FSP Group (Fortron Source) BoosterX 3, 300W</a> is $89.99<br><br>
Together, less than $300.<br><br>
And if you want real power, and can rig your case for it, get two 750W silencers. I would pick that any day over this beast.

wouldnt it be cheaper to use dual PSU's? e.g. two fsp 700w's

've just ordered their 510 SLI. They make great PSU's, can't wait to see how it performs

That's a common misconception to think that a high power supply will raise the electricity bill. In general, it will actually lower the electricity bill because high power psus tend to have higher efficiency than the lower power, cheaper ones. You have to remember that a computer will only draw X amount of power, regardless of how powerful the psu is, so the higher the efficiency, the cheaper the electric bill. Total available power doesn't affect power consumption, efficiency does.

I agree with Chozart. I'd go with a pair of Silencer 750's before I spent that kind of money on a single PSU. For the relatively modest increase in power for the cost of the unit (12v rail alone gets an additional 12 amps, the rest of the rails are about identical to the Silencer 750), It makes FAR more sense to get a pair of 750's and enjoy 120 total amps, rather than just an extra 12, and pay $150 less, as well.<br><br>
EDIT: Not to mention the 1000w SR has an additional 2 inches of depth over the 750... I know that would interfere with other components in my case, and probably a lot of others as well.

Where are you going to mount them?

If I get to the point where I need that much power for whatever reason, I'd most likely get a CM Stacker or something else already capable of supporting dual PSUs.

Factor the increased case cost into the equation then and also realize that you're now limiting your case choices to only those with dual psu mounts if you're unwilling to mod. Also, you'll be using 2 plugins on a surge protector or outlet. Not saying I don't agree with you, merely pointing out that there can be reasons why a person has to use 1 psu in a particular setup.

Its really not that much more on your power bill (still depends on the price of electricity for where you live), maybe $10-15 more per month if you keep the thing fully loaded 24/7. Still, this is just kind of rediculous. I'd rather wait till the really good technology comes out than have to settle for these crappy things (overly hungry GFX, stupidly big PSU's, etc..).

prity soon we'll all have 50k rpm hdd and they alone will requre 75 amps. The powersuply is just future proof.

I hear what you're saying. In a lot of cases, though, there just isn't enough room for the depth of the 1000w PCP&C's.<br><br>
I really can't use cost as a motivating factor in my choice, anyways. We're still talking about quite a few hundred dollars just for PSUs, let alone the hardware that would require it. Anyone that truly NEEDS that kind of power isn't going to balk at a few hundred for a case. What it really comes down to, for me, is getting the most for the money invested, not necessarily <i>saving</i> money. A pair of 750s would put out far more power for the money invested in them vs. the 1000w. Yes, a Dual PSU capable case would be necessary, but again, the 1000w needs a deep case to even be used, and would be a necessary expense for use of that PSU.<br><br>
It's really gonna come down to personal preference. A lot of home builders won't want to deal with the headache involved in wiring dual PSUs, making the 1000w SR look a lot more attractive. Others, Like me, prefer an excess of power, and revel in the complexities of such a task.<br><br>
Besides, Dual PSUs add length to the ePenis <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">
