Can't fathom what you are trying to resolve. However a 500 watts Power Supply is normally adequate to run a CPU, Monitor, Printer, Keyboard and Mouse.

In fact you can ascertain the Power Requirements of the first three from their specs and add up to see how much the total power consumption would amount to. The Power used by the keyboard and mouse is miniscule.

How many Amps does it have? What about the 12v Rails? Single, Dual, Triple, Quad?

500 watts should run nearly any PC with a single video card. Most PCs don't use even 300 watts.

But OCZ would not be my brand choice.

It should work for you doesn't give you much room for upgrades, say dual video cards, water cooling, multiple HDD and so on. I would suggest you think about 700 or so to allow some head room.

Minimum of a 500 power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps.)

I would say yes. OCZ is a quality brand. Not the best out there, but still very good for the money. I have three of them. I have a 700W running the system in my specs, and a 600W running my server, which has 4 GB of memory, and 5 hard drives.
