Silly they might have been, but I personally could have used that size 
PS, in a server machine with a lot (seven) of large and very old scsi 
disks.  Dual CPU motherboard as well, three NICs on the PCI bus and an 
on-mo-bo NIC as well, plus a RAID card, older video (some older matrox 

And I agree, PCPower is a good company, good odds and ends too, cables 
and adapters and the like.
