hmm probably not, the HD 2900 XT consumes about 240-250w. FYI the 8800 GTS out performs the HD 2900 XT in almost everything, plus the 8800 GTS is a lot cheaper too.

I would say the gtx outperforms in everything.
The gts is better in some areas.
If ati had their drivers figured out im pretty sure it would be better than the gtx and comparible to the ultra.

^ this is true.. i remember... the 8800gtx came out.. and it barely out performed the 7950gt... give it time.. good drivers will come.. but NosBoost.. get the Omega drivers.. if AMD doesn't fix the driver issues by the time u get ur 2900xt

For the 2900XT, the newest drivers are best. For older cards (X1xxx), Omega all the way.
