Eh, don't know whether or not to believe it. Ever seen a PowMax 500W unit?

I'd need someone to verify the quality first.

Zippy/Emax? Err I'm sure a 700 watt PSU from them will probably run about 500 at most in real life. That's not sustained wattage, probably peak at best. Seen this movie before and I know how it ends.

Well hopefully you get something for $300 dollars.

Sort of reminds me of the 72x CD-roms.

ya $300 is a lot of money, and it prolly doesnt run at 700w, just its maximum, blowout in 5 sec highest speed. but, even if they do pack at least a few seconds into a psu at 700 watts, thats a lot of power. heh.

I remember reading that Apple uses a 600 some watt power supply in top of the line Power Mac G5's. It runs a water pump but still, thats a lot for a stock system. I thought RISC cpu's were supposed to be more power efficient and cooler than x86.

well when you consider that a top of the line g5 costs over 3000 w/o monitor, i wouldnt call that a "stock system". but thats jsut my opinion, but yes that is still a lot of power

Maybe this PSU is like Intel Prescott. The spec is high, but not outputting anything that great. Also the price is high like Intel P4EE chip. I rather have two quality PSU for $150.00 than 1 PSU that is $300.00 dollars.

i thought there wereent really that many cases that could accomidate 2 PSU's.

There aren't, but that doesn't mean you can't get a little creative, and mount the second one down near the bottom of the case.

Actually, there are quite a few cases supporting dual or redundant PS's, I have one.

They are called server cases, but they are generally not in the same price range as standard ATX cases.

how would you share the two different psu's power? would you run different parts on different psu's or is there something that u can make dual-channel for psu's?

"Freeze, your under arrest for the murder of Moe Sislack and Apu Nahasapasa...OK nevermind, just moe."
 
I always just ran different parts off of differnt power supplys.

Of course I wasn't ever using server cases, just regular towers.

heya dd_viper

with SLI comming out seeing as the 6800Ultra requires a 450w to 480w PSU depending on the brand of the card, i wonder how much wattage NVidia is going to recommend for Dual 6800Ultras, 800w maybe? ROFL its getting a tad bit rediculous dont you think, what, for the next generation cards we are gonna need 1000w according to NVidias current wattage recommendation trend haha

if you have a need for 700 watts you already have a large case to hold all the crap you need to run, it would most likely hold two power supplys easily.
