5A Power Supply needed ?

I plan on having a powered USB hub (with 5v 2A power supply) as part of my planned development system -will I need the 5v power supply that is included with the 1014 Starter Kit too?

You might want to check to make sure your hub isn't on the RPi naughty list.

ah, hah. Thank you for the heads up on the naughty list. i will look into that.
And thank you both for answering. It seemed like a silly question, but I've found the only silly question is the one you don't ask.
