Purchasing A Power Supply Unit For Your Computer by Jason Busch
... However, more and more claims of "Sli Ready", "SLi Certified", and "High Performance" paired with 600W-700W PSUs selling for only $150, the marketing is clear: You don't have to spend a lot of money for a high-end PSU to power your high-end computer.

Is the Death of Internet Radio Imminent? by Paul Philbeck
... So why would the large record companies push for these high royalty rates? That is the question on everyones mind. Why indeed. The internet has proven itself to be a viable outlet for new music sales. One would think the music recording industry would grasp this technology with open arms and welcome it into their already existing media outlets.
