well you know what thats your opinion. I personally dont give a damn if you buy from me or not. One purchase doesnt make a difference to me. All that matters is the other 30 that said it was great.

Or, just a really powerful graphics card, with most of your system overclocked. I doubt 650 watts could handle a system like that.

that's a lot of replies. anyways, i went with that psu because of the free shipping, the rebate, and the price. plus, ron has the exact same computer as me, and he said it worked fine.

im trusting that, and many other people have agreed.

hell, its too late anyways so there's really no reason to post your opinion now lol..

It depends on the system. If a person is running 3 4870x2, Intel i7 Extreme, an X amount of RAM, numerous hard drives, some sort of expensive cooling, and a lot of fans, he's going to need it. Especially when he overclocks that monster.

Remember you want a bit of headroom with your PSU. Keeping the load under 75% prolongs life and eliminates a lot of heat.
