Twice as much??
Where'd you get that from? I have not seen any DX10 cards on the market, and any specs coming out now are likely based on early prototypes. If anything, I expect the power draw to be less, since the cores will be based on smaller technology. If true, however, Phase becomes mandatory, since even water will not keep it cool (although you can brew a nice cup of tea with the water from your watercooled rig). Logic would already lead to the conclusion that this is not true.
But, the ones I mentioned are each more powerful (based on current, and the Enermax might have a disadvantage because the way the rails are configured) than the PC Power & Cooling 1KW.
