When new cards come out from either NVIDIA or AMD, two of the big changes are usually power consumption/heat. As new architecture is introduced, cards are usually able to run cooler(perhaps take a bit more power) but more efficiently than it's previous generation(say GTX 460 and GTX 560
1200w? Well, I would wait until the 600 series comes out. When you don't know, don't decide and take a leap of faith. For all we know, they could take up more power(though I doubt it), or require less, and 1200w might be either too little or just a bit too much(though I highly doubt it). Maybe you could wait until the 600 series, and get a better more efficient PSU as well(maybe 80 Plus Platinum might become more common by 2012(kind of doubt it still; but Gold might be) Save and wait is my opinion.
