    Sounds like an interesting idea at any rate, not sure if there are any drawbacks other than fitting it on the desktop somewhere, but I could probably just get a second CP-850 here and do the same if I needed it eventually, and plonk it on the desk behind the tower and run the cables in the rear. They are huge and run quiet, not sure if hooking one up independently from the main would effect things overall myself.

    I guess you'd have to jump a few things, but *shrug*



    *edit* if you were going to do that though not sure I'd trust that one with you're GPU's though. I'm not familiar with that particular one myself.

    Yeah I did, I wondered about that after I looked, but still not sure I'd trust it.

    Of course I hadn't read any reviews on it either I guess

    Well, is it quality? Has JonnyGuru reviewed it? Refurbished? Effiency rating?

    That's the issue. I'd get a new known good one and keep the old as a spare. Or sell to s freind. Or build a smaller PC.

    New PSU with 80+% green whatever rating thats worth a crop in reviews is my suggestion.
    I want my old title back.
    Old beast is torn down.
    Will update later.
