if it say a 1000w it doesn't mean it can supply that
While that is true (as decent number of psu makers list peak power instead of continuous power (as proven in this video
.... thats not what you were implying when you were saying that the psu is "overkill".
All i said was " it better to pick a psu that's overkill" meaning at least your more likely
to have a computer that will run and it doesn't hurt the computer any to have extra un-need wattage.
And some times it better to buy a powerful psu than by a psu that just fits your needs. If your a frequent hardware upgrader, this is one of the components in a computer that you may want to pay on the extra now and have it last though 2 or 3 rebuilds meaning you could save money this way.
Although now im getting off topic of the thread about this.
Its almost like when hard drives claim to have 500gb and really you get about 465 thats actually usable :P
If memory serves right (which may not be right ), it not really a hdd lacking that 500GB but it the way an OS and HDD makers lable (or calculates) sizes differently that causes confusions.
HDD makers like to use easy numbers like 160, 250, 500, 640, 750, 1TB, ect. (although i forget what they called the numbering system. numerical maybe?)
OS's like to use a binary numbering system so it more or less like 2,4,8,16,32,64,128, ect.
Now, i like i said earlier, i could have my info wrong as i haven't looked up this subject in a long time. So it can be wrong, backwards, or right.
Either way, too bad we'll never have "true" 500GB hdd that we will see in OS.
Dontcha kinda think that was a wee bit odd to give a best anwser to someone that has only replied once in a thread and it's not as helpful of a post as other post have been.
It's not like i dont appreciate it and all but i haven't exactly "helped" you much.
So i would of though that you would of waited a bit to select the "best answer".
(although i've really haven't cared for the badge and points system at all. so it doesn't bother me any. Just as long as i can help others and have a good time.
