Doesnt have dual bios but it is unlockable, I unlocked mine...

If you are thinking to overclock yourses, choose MSI its easier way to OC it but you still can OC the ASUS one. Anyway you also need a powerful PSU like +700W. Good luck to decide which one you want to choose ^^

EDIT: forgot to tell you the idle temps :
IDLE: 37-38C with CCC 11.5b
A 550w PSU should be enough from what I read.

Used to have the TFIII, load temps stayed under 70c with stock fan profiles

I'm just quoting from the original box

'A minimum 600W system power supply(with 12V current rating of 30A)'

My suggestion is a bit higher watts for good overclocking. Btw this graphics card needs 8-pin+6-pin power connector, not like 2x6-pin...

And TFIII only requires 2x6 pin power connectors. Had two in CF on an 850w psu and everything was great, both were overclocked along with cpu.

OP, if this is for your sig rig, a quality 400 W is enough if you don't OC (assuming it has the necessary cables).
My rig runs on a 550W and I'm not even near 100% PSU load.
