    waayyyy to big of a PSU......almost twice as big

    unless your running like a €10000 rig completely filled to the brim with stuff and high power draining equipment

    650-700 is enough for your normal single card single CPU setup

    Yeah 1200 watts is more power than any commercial computer can use. Lets just say that 1200 watts is the amount of electricity in any given US power socket.

    Shit, you couldn't even hook that up to a power strip and try to share with other devices because it would take it all.

    Sad to know people think I am stupid.
