You can run an
--overclocked Core i7 965 Extreme Edition
--32 sticks of DDR3 RAM,
--10 high RPM SATA hard drives,
--2 DVD Burners,
--1 BluRay drive,
--1 PCI RAID SATA controller card,
--Dual ATI Radeon 4870 x2's in Crossfire
--10 120mm case fans \

And you still have 10 watts to spare.

Just sayin :)

Win7 64bit Ultimate

I think I paid about 160.00 Total for my Corsair 800W unit. This was after fighting with Xion for 6 weeks to get an RMA on my last unit.

About another 6 weeks of fighting after I got the Corsair unit in they finally got around to sending me a replacement for the old unit. The replacement was an 850W the burned out unit was only 600W but I sold the Xion 850W because it was the third unit after returning 2 that only lasted 6 months each.
