Well, I'm ordering parts and I need to decide on a PSU. I've got three in my price range, and the most expensive has 4 12V rails versus 2 on the other ones. I honestly have no clue what a 12V rail even is and if I even need 4.
Here they are
700W Raidmax for $70
680W Apevia for $80
700W OCZ for $90
Here's what I will eventually be running
MOBO - Asus P5N-E 650 Sli
CPU - E8400
RAM - 4GB of Patriot DDR2 800
GPU - ATI 3870 512MB of GDDR4
DVD/CD Drives - Samsung 20X DVD Writer and a Samsung 18X DVD Writer
HDD - 750GB Seagate
I know that 680-700W is plenty for this system, so if rails don't matter than I'll be going with the cheapest Raidmax here, as I would prefer modular cabling.
Thanks a bunch
