Depends how much power your pulling though. If it's say 300W, then the difference between gold and bronze is not going to be much. If you're pulling upwards of 800W, then it may be worth it.
Agree. If you want to know exactly how much power you are pulling you will need to buy a power meter that goes better the outlet and your power cord.
