I actually think your right. Fuck that I think I'm going to find a different one. It's already kind of dumb that it doesn't come with a power cord. Well I hate the fact that this is true, but being eco-friendly isn't always the best.

Okay so hopefully for the last time: SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST60F-ES 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

That will work right? BTW I just want to say thanks for helping me out with this.

I didn't know AVX would eat up bandwidth enough to make an impact on 1333 mhz. How much more is the impact compared to SSE 4.1/4.2?
