True, but, it just seemed a little too harsh. I am just angry that when I first joined the community everyone was nice and no worries, and lately it seems that everyone is bashing newbs for no good reason and just basically arguing over the most simple of things.

"To give you an idea of how much power this is, a single 7800GTX, currently the fastest consumer card on the market, draws around 285 Watts of power under full load conditions."

Don't believe everything you hear. Nvidia I believe said it's more power efficent than 6800U.

I also origionally before the card was releaed, heard it was 225 :P
