So I have a question for our readers... How much thought do you put into your power supply choice? Do you simply go with what you can afford and / or can get your hands on? Or do you put as much into the PSU decision as you do the CPU or GPU?
Since hanging around with Jon (JonnyGURU) and Jeremy (Oklahoma Wolf). I started putting more weight on the PSU decisions I make. It's gotten to the point that I will put more thought into the decision of the power supply than I will any of the other components used in the rig. I'm not a good example though, seeing that I change power supplies out quite often and tend to go through several different ones over a rigs life. As better units become available, I swap out the less efficient units for the more efficient ones.
Normally, I don't really have to stop and think to much about what power supply I'm going to use, because I have a selection on hand of some of the beset units that fit my needs. All of my computers are constantly being taken apart and put back together, which means I am constantly changing hardware (including the PSU's).
If I am building a system for someone else though. I tend to spend a bit more time deciding what PSU, when compared to the CPU and GPU for example.
