In my dorm my room mate has his machine plugged into the same outlet as we have the tv, the micro wave, and both mini fridges. He has played Fallout 3 while I was watching the Daily show and nuking some Ramen. Nothing bad has ever come of it.

He's fine.. maybe look into the 850tx if he wants to go all the way on both GPU's and the Core i7

EDIT:

ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 vs. Nvidia GeForce GTX 280: Decisive Battle - X-bit labs

Looking at the review, the GTX 280 is slower than an HD 4850X2,

I don't like tomshardware, the results are always wacky....for example in those charts it shows CF 3870s outperforming cf 4870s? come on now.....


The 4850x2 is indeed faster than a GTX 280

Gtx285 will be just ahead of the 280 perhaps the 4850x2 it is suppose to be 110% faster but thats just estimation really.
