OK this is getting out of hand.

mind you, that's probably the better solution. the card eats 200 watts of 12v power? give it a brick that gives it exactly what it needs. better than putting an x00 wat psu in the box that splits its power into the 3.3v, 5, and 12v rails. keep the psu in the box at 400 watts to run basic equipment and drives, anything that has special power needs, like a graphics card that eats more than say 50 watts needs to bring its own power. the cost increase (especially percentage wise) on high end cards like that shouldn't be too bad, and it will probably help system stability if the bus only has to supply signals and not those huge amounts of power.
