Guess it depends on the ATX supply. I've got an ATX2.0 supply here that provides up to 30A@3.3V. Just have a look at the label.
My 250W ATX PSU here is rated at 14A on the 3.3v rail, which is amusingly higher than it's 12v rail, which is only rated at 8A. It only needs the soft switch tied to ground to start up, so I have it all set and ready. I'll try it out in a few minutes, when my soldering iron finishes heating up again. Thanks a bunch for the suggestions and, with any luck, this will solve my problem.
Ok, well, I got everything hooked up, and the power supply is outputting the correct voltage, but I'm still getting (0xf4) and (0xf4f4f4), which is what I got from the ProgSkeet powering it as well. I'm rather confused as 14.0A on +3.3v should be doing the job just fine. I've heard of others not being able to collect the NOR identity with newer versions, and some recommended 0.4b12. I was unable to locate that version, however, and therefore have no idea if that would work or not. If the chip was blank or full of garbage data, I'd still assume it would report it's chip versions just fine as well, so the ProgSkeet being retarded shouldn't have anything to do with it either. Any other ideas?
PS. I have plenty of images, but as I'm yet to reach a 15-post count, I can't post any of them, or direct links to them. Should you wish to see my installation, here's a broken-up link to my album. Link: imageshack(dot)us/g/1/9969618/
