    Cables should be 18 gauge for PCI-E, EPS/P4, 24pin motherboard (though things like 5vsb and -5v, -12v can be 20 gauge due to low current,) Molex/sata should be 18 gauge, floppy's are typically 22 gauge which is ok because they don't draw that much wattage at all.

    A lot of high quality 5v based psu's will have a few 16 gauge wires for the 5v and 3.3v on the 20+4 connector.
