Australian Law to enforce 80+ Silver or better

New laws in Australia are set to enforce 80plus silver or better power supplies on all new PCs being sold as of October this year. Hopefully, this will weed out most cheap and nasty $30 PSUs.

They should limit PC buying before they require super-efficient PSUs. This isn't going to do anything to discourage manufacturers from using Fuhjyyu, anyway. :P
Authoritarianism is for wimps.

Smart people don't buy "smart" devices without very carefully weighing up the risks and benefits beforehand.

My PC: Core i3 4130 on GA-H87M-D3H with GT640 OC 2GiB and 2 * 8GiB Kingston HyperX 1600MHz, 2 * WD3003FZEX-00Z4SA0, Pioneer BDR-209DBKS, Seasonic G-360, Silverstone PS08, Windows 7 Pro (somewhat begrudgingly).
