Overkill doesn't begin to describe it
You could run 2 of your systems with that amount of power, 1 on each rail to make the single rail noobs happy :lol:

delluser is correct on both counts, the PSU is more the enough regardless of its 12v rail and splits

2 rails is fine, but 1 is always better. Just don't buy one of those junk psu's with 5 rails.

You'll notice all high end psu's are single rail.

Didn't say it was great
It's a modern FSP build, so probably decent enough
With 432 watts of power to the 12v it's pretty powerful, not quite w 620 watt psu though
Gigabyte has a tendency to use "peak" instead of "continous" power when rating some of thier unit's
Might have exaggerated a bit about 2 systems running on it, but it's way more power than you need
Was more annoyance at the "first post ever on Tom's" single 12v rail comment than straight thinking
Go here, will explain 12v rails and more
