That is why they build one big PSU to boot it all. If you aint got the juice, have a electrician come in and drop a new wire and outlet for 20 amps or greater. To feed a house each month could easily be changed from Filet Steak down to Steakumms three times a week to build up the cash to get it all. Especially now that you have 1000 dollar cards to feed. Don't forget a quality APU or UPS of sufficient capacity. That utility company does not care what you have in the house should they have a bad day.
