According to Nivida, 40A on the 12v's combined is needed to run 1 9800gx2. Beefy psu :/

Ewww.. Better hurry on those drivers for quad sli because I'm not impressed with the performance of 2 over 1. According to this review for crysis.

Boy oh boy, would that ever be nice to have sitting in my computer room

Haha, I like this the most-

"Bloody ****, look at that! That's 104 FPS in 2560x1600 with 4xAA and 16xAF. Brilliant stuff."

104 frames per second at 2560x1600 with 4xAA and 16XAF. That's br00tal.
