Agreed, but I don't think that's got much to do with religion.

I'm fairly confident that the only reason it's cropped up is a) to get all of the anti-gay marriage voters back on side and to b)...

If it's marketplace though, Amazon probably won't be any the wiser as to your complaints.

On the plus side, there's no ambiguity about the situation. You shouldn't have any trouble.

Anything more than 500-600W is crazy, even SLI rigs can run happily on a 500W.
