Double? No. A dual core, single HDD, two sticks of RAM, two faned rig running a HD2900XT uses 378W, and the same rig with a 8800GTX uses ~307, and the 8800GTS at around 281W. Not double.
In many threads you make statements without backing them up. Start doing it. It's annoying, especially when you see people believing your statements and making decisions off of them.
Also, the card doesn't "suck." The drivers were hella premature. The driver updates alone (read the link, if you want proof) nearly added 10-15FPS to the HD2900XT, and ATI (AMD) STILL says the drivers need work.
Don't pull the fanboy card if you can't back your stuff up.
