    Update - I just ordered the Tagan, and a few other bits and pieces from overclock.co.uk (thanks to Firelord for the link there!).

    By the way, I noticed that when I put an order in to SCAN, that they add VAT to both the order AND the carriage. Is that normal? Either way, SCAN would have cost me a tenner more for less stuff!

    yes that is normal, you have to pay VAT on everything, the products and the delivery. Over-clock are the same, they quote the inc vat price in little writing next to the product

    dont just look at the wattage of PSUs look at the individual rails.
    the 3.3, 5 and 12v - 12v should be decently high!

    all mine ar above 30a's on each of the rails
