3) It is not wrong to overprovision your psu a bit. It will still consume only the wattage that is demanded of it. The price increase will not be much.
In addition, it will operate in the more efficient middle third of it's range and be quieter. A quality 550w unit will still power the latest top end 28nm graphics cards like the 7970 or GTX680.
Thank you very much for the reply friend. Well, Kuwait is not a versatile market where you can really have multiple choices. You get either the costliest brands like thermal take or cheap ones like Discovery discovery-int.com. The selection process once again becomes difficult when most of resellers don't keep any sample pieces or technical specs with them.
Anyway the one I picked up for my new desktop machine DC output is 12v 24A max! I was keeping on monitoring the temperature physically for couple of days (summer is just starting here and the airconditioners will be on around the clock) and seems everything is "kool" until today.
I am trying to figure out a proper thermaltake PSU, once I get a recommendation, will order it online.
