and don't forget the demands of oc'ing.

OC'ing the cpu not only needs stable power, but depending on how much extra volts you give it and how high an fsb, you can easily double the power draw. Even tho c2d's are much better than the prescotts, but they also OC a lot better so the total power draw can be nearly as high as a prescott under 100% load.

Ditto for gpu's.

And longevity under sustained loads ... i am a folder ...every rig is oc'ed and runs 100% load 724.
