    I haven't seen something that scary since watching a dodgy old black & white film with much shouting of "It's aaaliiiive!" in it!

    I hope that's a piece of manufacturing "because they can" and not because we need it.

    I would never run a PC that consumed 2kW of power.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Yeah, but the company Ultra are releasing a 2kw PSU that is around the same size as PC P&C's monster unit - i.e. it's INTERNAL. I mean an internal 2kw supply will have limited sales, but an external one will have virtually none.

    idiotic. it only encourages higher consumption in components *glares at nvidia and ati*

    PSU companies need to put brakes on and go 'whoa... 850W no more, take it or leave it'

    sadly, its all about the marketing.

    take a leaf from Intel, listening to PR got them nowhere with the P4...
