After you use a ultra x3 PSU you don't go back.. The cables are just sooo nice (See sig)
i thought the card wouldn't notice the difference if an adaptor was used, (no matter what the card)....

save some $$ and get my psu, 2x 8xPCIe and 2x 6xPCIe, and the 8x ones can shave off the 2 extra pins if needed

but if you love modular, you'll want to pass this up, lol

You should also note, CPU speed does nothing in games @ high resolutions.
See, they are dropping in price. Hopefully to a price that they're really worth...

And I disagree in a big way about cpu clocks and their relation to game performance at high resolutions. That's flat out incorrect..

Don't try and be a smart ass, the reduction on the GPU's is a cause of Price Gauging, it happens on most new high end products. It's not really a statement of an official cut in prices like Intel are doing with their CPU's.

CPU Speed is irrelevant @ 1920x1200 w/ 8xAA 16x AF, say what you want on this aspect.

DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDDD DDDDDDD

My first EVGA 9800GX2 is sitting here. PCXtreme hasn't gotten my 6pin to 8pin adpater here yet. This sucks, I have been using a $30 graphics card waiting for this release. I have just enough money for another 9800GX2, but I have decided to wait and see what I need to see. Kind of sucks that I have a 1010w OCZ (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=230234282498) and can't use it. Damn, I spend almost $50 to cope in the interim when I could have put that money towards a new power supply. RANT IS OVER!!!

Any suggestions on a "cheap" power supply that can run two of the badboys?

If I ordered one it'd be this one @ MotherboardPro. $525.99 is pretty cheap for a GX2, but I'm still going to pass. When the eVGA GX2s dip to around $500 or less I might pick one up to play with, but until then it's 8800GT for me.

With regard to your off color remark, I choose not to dignify that with a response.

I will track down the article outlining the price reduction, rest assured.

Uh, no one runs 8xAA 16x AF @ just about any resolution. That's plain goofy.

Q6600 and 2x 9800 GX2?? Can you say CPU bottleneck??

Oh well, it's your hard earned money, can't wait for the benchmarks.

Myself, one of those cards and a phase system would be an interesting combo.
At least bottlenecking would be less of a problem.
