At 1000w power draw you're already at the point where having two computers on the same circuit will trip the breaker. Much about 1000w and you're starting to run into problems if anything else high powered is on that circuit with your computer, or if you have crappy wiring, etc.

And then there's the cooling issues...
i ran two 20 amp circuits on 10 ga wire to my system a long time ago
