With nice looks, Active PFC, high efficiency, and extremely stable power output, the OCZ Technology GameXStream is the power supply to compare all others to. Either model will provide ample power for a SLI or Cross-Fire system, and with either 600W or 700W to choose from you will not be lacking in power. - The Review

Just because it can put out 700W to your system doesn't mean it is drawing 700W from the wall. Actually, I doubt you will ever see 1/2 of that. I think my 500W PSU draws a max of about 150W on the wall, and at idle it is like 90W (@ 165 VA idle and 250VA load).

Yup, very true. Which is why there are multiple efficiency ratings....

It's just that the wattage rating is pretty high.

Makes a wide SOA(Safety Operating Area), nice if you plug too much things on it. You're sure you'll never burn it.

it seems like wattage is keep getting higher and higher. I wish that we can get more efficient psu so that we don't need that much wattage.

You mean more efficient optical drives, harddrives, CPUs, and the big ones...video cards. The PSUs are efficient, it's supplying more and more wattage because more and more hardware require it.

Thankfully they are starting to get higher effecient psu's. You can get some in the 90% range, but you are going to pay for it....
