Power supplies for that much current @ 12v are hard to come by aren't they? I've got a couple of 220W pelts I want to cool my dual athlon with. I've ended up with a 100,000uF cap on the end of the best part of a kilowatt of transformer and a 35amp bridge rectifier mounted on a 4 by 6 inch heatsink. I was lucky enough to have this lying around though. If I had to choose, I'd go with a switch mode PSU, but where you're going to get one in america for that price for what you want, I don't know - I'm english. I could design one though... :D
