Never understood this train of thought. Do you not see a problem at all with the bolded statement? The fact that you have to say, well it's fine, but 50 more watts due to overclocking and now it's an issue!
Sorry, I'm not one to risk $800 in just gpu's alone due to being at and/or near the max of my psu simply because it technically can run it.
