    Nice. I wish there was a (tangible) book that had all the XKCD/Cyanide and Happiness comics in it. I like these types of things. :moon:

    Nah, xkcdsucks occasionally references xkcdexplained though (e.g. http://xkcdsucks.blogspot.com/2010/1...ingly-bad.html has a link to http://xkcdexplained.com/post/1473853539/diode )

    Some of the more recent xkcdsucks have been a little lame because the main poster left...but the most recent one is quite good.
    That said, the angriest rants section on xkcdsucks is :gthumb:

    Lololol. I usually just mouseover the comic if I need an explanation, it often helps...

    Quick question - if I get a 800W PSU instead of a 600W PSU, would the 800W use more power, or would it only draw as much power as it needs?

    Only draws what it needs. Spikeymike's right on the money about efficiency. :yep:
