The Mach 1 has four rails, with 18A, 18A, 20A and 22A respectively. There are 900 and 950 watt PSUs with similar specs, and 750 watt PSUs with better specs, so I would say that the amp ratings are average, or maybe a little above.

Note that the Mach 1 is SLI certified. If you go to the nVidia site, you will see that there are five tiers of SLI certification for power supplies. The Kingwin 800w is in the third tier, which is certification for SLI rigs up to twin 8800GTS. The top tier is for twin 8800 Ultras, and consists only of 1kW PSUs and above. The second tier is for twin 8800GTXs, in that list is a small handful of 800 watt or less PSUs. Each one of them costs significantly more than the Mach 1. Actually, most of the 800w or less PSUs in the third tier cost more than the Mach 1. So, I guess that nVidia finds some “bang for the buck” value in the Kingwin Mach 1. I'm a “bang for the buck” kind of guy, so that's cool with me.
