comment PSU for GTX 970 + i7 4790
@cybermonkey: The 430W is the input power, which translates to about 380W output for this PSU, so it's actually 70W below the rated wattage. (See the 80+ report for detailed input/output values for this PSU). Apart form that, both Furmark and Prime64 are programs that put far more stress on the GPU and CPU than actual software, so the 430W number is much higher than what this setup will ever consume during daily use even under high load.

comment PSU for GTX 970 + i7 4790
Your assertion that a power supply never delivers his main number in watts is simply not true. You can look at any of the detailed reports at the 80+ website 80plus.com to find out what constitutes 100% load for for every PSU that is listed there. I.e. the 450W PSU that I mentioned in my answer was tested with 515.20W input wattage at 100% load and delivered 449.49W output. Actually most PSUs of decent quality can deliver at least 10% more than their rating.

Now it would be amazing if that change could somehow be made permanent.

comment Why do some downloading files not know their own size?
To be precise, HTTP 1.0 defined the content length by closing the socket after each document. This is still supported in HTTP 1.1 for compatibility. But HTTP 1.1 allows to reuse connections for multiple documents if either the Content-Length header field is used or the document is transferred with Transfer-Encoding: chunked. The latter allows to dynamically generate content and send it piecewise as it gets generated and is able to signal the end of the document.
