Mine was a different brand and it looked better, but this gives you an idea of what I am talking about. Like I said...they aren't going to be perfect, but it gives you a pretty good idea of the power you are pulling from the wall.
I'll be near a CDN Tire today, will stop by and pick up one of these. Then I'll know.
Thanks for the education on PSU Calculators - it is confusing for the less informed to understand. IF and when I upgrade to a second HD7970 I'll be sure to get at least an 850w with plenty of amps per rail. I see that the larger wattage units tend to have more than one rail.
