Well, anything that's truely going to be pushing 1kW wouldn't be what I'd
a "plain" home PC. A gaming rig with a SLI setup (2x300W) plus all the rest
the parts I'm sure could come close to 1kW under load. Not that it makes it
less ridiculous, but I can certainly see it happening.
Personally, I'm not sure which I find more preposterous: that there's cards
out that require that much power, or that the other option being proposed
having one monster PSU is having a secondary PSU *jsut for your video card*
occupies a 5.25" bay.
