Guess you have not seen the specs on the newest AMD's yet (X2 6000+ drawing 125W or so)

And if your SLI is only drawing that little more than a single card, then it's underutilized I know for a fact that when my Crossfire rig goes all out, I am looking at some 25A across both X1900's (overclocked). And there is no way a single 7900GTZ draws 200W. The X1900 series is the most power hungry card out there at the moment, at around 125W or so (of course more when overclocked). In my Crossfire, running Oblivion with all eye-candy gives both cards a hot workout.

What resolution are you running Oblivion at? I run it at max settings on 1240x1024. With 4x AA with my card. It doesnt seem to require as high end card as every one had told me. Thats also the max res my monitor can do.

1600x1200, HDR and 6xAA combined (Chuck Patch for ATI cards)

you mean, everything maxed out? All sliders, including distances, all the way at 100%?

Even with a single X1900 I won't be able to do that without running into serious low FSP in outside environments.

Where in the game are you?
