Are we moving in the wrong direction? 1 KW is a lot of power for a freakin' computer.

I have been running there real power 450w for the past 18 months or so now, its a good solid psu with for me, ample power left in it. However if an R600 uses as much power as my total system does now i might be humped.

Having a peak efficency of 85% is not bad but not great, but at what loading conditions is this, i notice it wants upto 8A @ 230v, thats a whole 1.84kW which means efficency could be as low as 65% at peak power (1.2kW) what is of more interest to me (and should be most of the rest of you out there) whats its efficency between the 200-300w range as thats where most of us (except sli & crossfire) push our psu's to on a daily basis

If you buy this and you only need a 300 watt PSU, there is something wrong....:crazy:

I can't see any reference to the heat output but I'm wondering if there's a need to take this functionality out of the box eg one case for the computer and another for the power station that feeds it :)

Heck of a good idea. Somehow I doubt that the mainboard's power connection would be within reach. This PSU is solidly built with big heatsinks and a huge fan, a box drawing ~750W probably doesn't heat it up too much. I think I can live without dual Vidcards and a dual-core processor.
