There are a lot of people using ATX power supplies with their Amigas. They are the people to listen to. What are they saying? Do their experiences agree with Jen's statement?

It is very important that the 5V is accurate, because hard drives use it, and they need an accurate supply just like a computer does.

These days, with accurate components becoming very cheap, it is relatively easy to get close to 5V.
