Default The Ultra X3 1000 Watt

What do you guys think of this unit? I personally think it could rock my system. Looking for feed back from anyone who has seen one of these in person. The price seems mighty decent for a 1000 Watt PSU..

I think you are aiming too high for your system. Your system barely draws 350W under load...there is no reason to get this, even if you add a another GTX.
