8800GTX out already? - Page 11

* 2x1GB PC2-6400
* NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX
* PowerColor ATI Radeon X1950 XTX
* Western Digital Raptor 150


I'm not a electrician but if somebody out there can build things like a motherboard out of silicone and metal those brilliant people can measure any sort of electronic scenario or problem they want. Like I said it could be done. If you have a specific reason why its not possible please explain..

A plausible explanation for the 800w SLI figure: Dailytech got the numbers wrong

I posted this in another thread...

I just got an 8800GTX 768MB.

The box says that the minimum requirements are that the PSU offers at least 30A on the 12V rail for the entire system.

Also, the card has two PCI-e connectors.

Sorry about the crappy photos. I had to use my cell phone because my wife is using the Canon.

They key is in the details (on the box in this case)

Recommended 30A! Thus many 450W units are out... and even some 'heavier' units might have trouble (note that the 580W Hiper just barely delivers that recommended 30A)

and yes, you can measure (or at least estimate) the several parts. But that requires meters at different points, and that goes a bit beyond the scope of these basic 'reviews'

Of course you can get some estimates by seeing what happens if you put a heavy load on the CPU alone, and then a heavy load on the GPU (with a game that does not use the CPU that much....)

kinda off topic but does anyone know the dimensions of these cards? I'll prolly have to re-rout one of my WC hoses to fit one.

also i wouldn't lay money on it but i bet you can get away with a lower amperage. for example one of my 7900gt's requires 22A but my psu only supplys 18A lol. I'd still get the recomended psu though.

Just a thought for that kinda money I would want a lifetime warranty.




LifeTime Warranty? LOLOL WHO CARE ABOUT IT!
who will use a Video card for more than 3-5year? lolol
what is the point have LifeTime Warranty on the Video card?
I change video card ever 1-2 year like most the ppl do, and dont think any1 here still use 5 years old video card to play game with.

I had a rig for a 9600 in it... but there was not a single game to be found on that rig.. LOL (ok ok, if you count solitaire... then yes)

I don't care about lifetime warranty.... if I break it, I'll do it within any warranty period... trust me

its not only that. EVGA warranty is still valid even if you REMOVE stock heatsink and use aftermarket cooler.

I know the 1100W Tagan does... not sure if you can get that one easily in the US. Also, the 1KW PC Power & Cooling does.

My personaly solution would be a solid PSU in the $150 range (ok, PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W) and add a FSP BoosterX for like $85. This is a GPU dedicated PSU delivering 300W, designed for current generation cards in SLI, but definately capable of powering a single 8800.

This would be a cheaper solution than the 1KW beasts.
