    Agreed

    I have a Corsair 520HX and never had a power issue. My specs:
    E6750
    Gigabyte P35-DS4 mobo
    PCI-Ex16 slot 1 -> eVGA Superclocked 8600GT
    PCI-Ex16 slot 2 -> LSI MegaRAID 8408E
    PCI -> LinkSys Wireless Adapter
    2 Optical drives
    1 320GB SATA-II HDD
    5 1TB SATA-II HDDs
    Antec 900 standard case fans all on medium or high.

    why, its not needed
