Default Single or multiple rail PSU?

hmmm. I've heard that quality single rails can be really good.
Or should I just stick to multiple rails?

Default Re: Single or multiple rail PSU?

If one PSU has a single rail carrying 30A and then another has dual rails with 35A, choose that one. However if they both have the same amperage, then choose the single-railed one.
