Righto, thanks for the warning.

@OP Sorry if we high-jacked your thread, but it's still on topic and hopefully useful to you  :)

Don't read too much into my being a Faraday Member: that just means I post a lot, not that I know much.

No PMs for help please

OP -- is your point here to test a circuit, or as a (semi-)permanent supply for a "production" project?  If it's for testing, I would go the route of the ATX PSU.  If you're looking for something permanent, I would choose something else.

Have you ever built your own?  Is that an option?  I use a linear AC-DC conversion stage with various E-I, toroidal, or PCB-mount transformers, then linear regulators for low-current (less than 500mA) rails.  I'll use switching regulators for 500mA to 5A.  Often when using higher-current devices, regulation isn't as important, so a rectified DC output with adequate filtering is good enough.
