Upgrading to a new graphics card soon which also means a new power supply. Looking over PSU's I keep seeing this "Dual 12v" option. Can someone explain to me what that is, and what it's benefits are? Also, The card I'm looking at requires a rating of 20a@12v. Most of the Dual 12v I look at don't reach this on a single rail. In the case of Dual 12v PSU's do I combine the amps from both rails? Someone please help. I think I'm gonna pass out. LOL...
