    Default what need is there for multiple 12v rails?

    y cant i just get a nice single rail like this one:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006
    60A on one rail should cover an nvidia 250gt, and an overclocked phenom 2 x3 right? plus i wont have to use 8 pins for my cpu, just 4, and just 1 6pin for my video card right? whats the point in splitting up the 12v source into rails? it just seems to create an unnecessary problem for the builder to balance the rail's loads.

    Ironically, there's a sticky in this very forum that answers such questions:
