First of all I would like to thank everybody answering my message,
because it has been of a great help.
Resulting from some messages (like Bill's) I do not know if geting the
APC9212 (10 Amperes) or the APC9218 (16 Amperes) which is a 15% more
expensive. Taking in acount that a PC box do not consume more than 1
pick Ampere, the 16 A model would be enought.
What do you think about it?

What if you have a dual motherbord as the ASUS A7M266-D (which according
to ASUS it needs a 400 Watts power supply)? Would in this case the pick
consume be higher than 1 A?

Finally, we have four dual boxes with ASUS A7M266-D and Athlon 1900+ MP
and they are using a 300 Watts power supply without apparent problems.
Is this advisable?

Thans in advance (again)
