You mentioned at the begining of the Review how you now see quite often people using high end hardware but using cheap-o PSU's and you are not sure why.
I think the biggest problem now-a-days is Everyone and Their Mom sells/makes PSU's for your PC.
I know back when I built my AMD 2500 System There was only 1 or 2 Companys that you would even consider buying a PSU from that you knew was going to be reliable and last!
Most High Quality Builds back then everyone went with Antec TruePower. I actually am sitting next to my AMD 2500 Machine right now and it has the Antec TruePower 550Watt PSU.
I got this back in 2002 and the thing is still a beast!
Now anyone who makes a PC Part has a PSU on the Market. (Well Maybe not everyone.)
Thats my 2cents anyways..
Great Review though!
