gunna get the good communitys opinion on this one.. heres the two psu's im considering buying please tell me which best fits my needs.. heres my system, i want the one thats gunna be STABLE and reliable. My system is:
Pentium 4 3.0 prescott
ati radeon 256mb agp
4 X 512 kingston ram
80 gig hd
I differ with Rich, I consider it not a big deal to have 1 or 2 12v rails - 2x12v @ 16A+ or 1x12V @ 20A+ makes for stable enough power. Intel updated their spec in the fall and dual rail wasn't a requirement any more.
Many times what the engineers (using the term loosely in this case) did was make a single large 12v source of power, then split it with 2 current limiters - so its still 1 12v line and a spike on 1 will effect the other. I would hope not everyone did this but...
