Does power have even that much affect on performace? Because it is the amount of electrons flowing trhough, the more you got flowing the better. SO I think it would. Although my insanely small knowledge on PSUs could be wrong on this one...

Yes it does. You want power that's stable and not leaking all over the place from extension plugs. PSU's always matter, because you want good power going into your system, not the bad stuff.

it doesnt need to be SLI certified, unless you are running an SLI setup. If you are, i HIGHLY RECOMMEND A SLI CERTIFIED PSU.

There was a time when computers only ran on 250watts. I still remember my first Gateway PC that had a 250watt power supply. Now, the 7800GTX need something like 550 minimum watts for SLi config!!!! That's juice baby.
