Will you believe the PSU is important now?

A True Review points out all the ways that a strong PSU is the heart of any system.  Now that every component in your PC is thirsting for more power ... a high end graphics card will drain as much power as an entire system would have 5 years ago, you need to put a lot more thought into the PSU you use.

"Back in the old days, for most people the power supply was an after thought when building a computer.

Though having a good PSU has always been important, you really never had to worry about compatibility

when it comes to power supplies. Power rating aside; as long as it was ATX and had plenty of Molex

connections, you were good to go. Fast forward to today where RAID SATA drive setups and dual graphic

cards are the staple of a premium computer system, choosing a PSU that supplies enough juice and is

equipped with the latest standards is undeniably important to insure the compatibility and potential

growth of your system. Of course, when I say the latest standards I am referring to the ATX 2.0

compliancy as well as being SLi/Crossfire ready."
