Out of curiosity, why would you require a 1kw psu?

HERE'S one from PCpowerandcooling. I can only imagine that a 1,000 watt power supply could also double as heater for cold winter nights :thumbsup: :flowers:

LOL! I live up north where we get about 5 feet of snow! I'm only about 45 minutes from the Canadian border :thumbsup:

High end SLI vga cards, or a server....or a heater! If you're going to be running a lot of things, I guess that a high end power supply would be nice to have!

Here's another er situation .. one Kilowatt

This high-performance power supply works with your main power supply to reduce the loading. And you donít have to upgrade your current PSU while running in dual card mode.

The high-end videocards in SLI or Crossfire are requiring huge amounts of energy to run. Make sure the case can handle a 1KW power supply, they are typically larger. On the positive side of additional power, you can SLI an 8800 and enjoy all the eye candy...if only the drivers would be updated soon, watching the flickering shadows in Oblivion is a little annoying.
