Well, actually i just jumpstarted the psu by connecting the green wire from the 24 pin molex (the one that starts the psu up) to a black one (ground). This way, the psu is started completely as soon as i hit its power switch
btw, if you do this too, never forget that you will fry the psu if it is not connected with any load. for instance, at least connect a cd drive or so, and a few fans.

it's to spread the load a bit, instead of getting a 600W PSU, you can use a 'heavy' PSU for the CPU & VGA and a 'light' PSU for fans, fancontrollers, cd, hdd and other stuff.
The 'heavy' PSU will have more than enough juice to power the CPU & VGA while the 'light' one has an easy (and probably noise-free) job to do.
Or something like that

More juice for the CPU & VGA ?
I can't realy explain, but I can give you another example:
the oven in our kitchen has it's own cutout (instead of being connected on the cutout for the whole kitchen).
Because the oven draws a lot of power and if it would be connected on the kitchencutout, then that cutout would probably open when the oven is on, the microwave is in use and my mother is ironing.
But now we can do everything at the same time (like if we do that ).

Please do note dat using 2 PSUs iso 1 PSU may lead to higher power usage.

2 PSU, because you split the load, less change of overloading 1 PSU, so less prone to crashing
