    Right. So this is a discussion of "PSU companies that make their own PSUs" versus "PSU companies that contract others to make their PSUs"?

    Bullshit argument.

    There's a reason the largest component brands DON'T own their own factories and those that used to be large and own their own factories are no more.

    They're both equally full of fools who don't know what they're talking about.

    Sadly, the empty can rattles the most; so those fools usually have the loudest voice and command the most attention...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.
