I wouldn't buy anything less than an 800W PSU for two of these TBH. If you have a lot of fans, HDDs, lights, and watercooling then you'll need it...

This is even more incentive to wait for the revision.

How about whoever is planning on getting these, just gets one since it sounds like it will be a significant increase in raw power and performance over the past top cards... I know I am planning on only getting one...I wouldnt want my System to explode, plus I only have a 750watt PSU and a Small case (Antec 900)...

Lower then the 9800GX2? Good, I don't want to have to get a new PSU anytime soon.

Would a 9800GX2 fit in the Antec 900 Case, cus if it does, I will be able to fit the 280 GTX...

I've seen two 9800GX2s in an Antec 900 before. Shouldn't have a problem.

Yep.

Two 80mm fans under my 880GT, one 80mm in the iCage which is in the drive bays with my HDD.

I don't have any more 120mms.
