I'm not worried about powering something with such a high power draw. It's the heat and possible noise.
Who cares what performance you get if you can't stand to be around the thing.
Comfort > performance.
Maybe good for some benchmarking, but real use, sorry, I'll take a card that performs about as well while being enjoyable to be around.
Maybe if you keep your computer in the living room or something heat isn't a issue. But, if you're like me and keep your computer closed off in a office/computer room then that heat builds up quick. I could run the AC high enough to keep the room cool, if I were single... I'm not though and my ol'lady loves any chance to complain about it being too cold in our house.
