Be careful.

Some seem to have strong feelings about PSUs. (???)

LOL. I'm one of those. You can see my posts from MANY years ago here about the ridiculousness of way over powered PSU's that people get. I'm not saying high power PSU's aren't useful for some people, but they are pointless for many people, especially when your system is usually under 10% of the peak power (like a PC that runs 50 watts most of the time with a 1,000 watt power supply: 5% of full power), since the efficiency will tank. And if you don't care about efficiency (I do, somewhat), then why even get 80+ gold or higher.
