6 pin is normal, my 4850x2 takes an 8 pin and a 6pin. Most cards will take a single 6 pin now adays(5770's). and fermi is DX11

take a look at my mod and let me know what ya think for the possible color i picked out to paint my case.

can they run DX11? (distracted by a baby dont really feel like looking it up XD)
Yes, they can run DX11.

But the power consumption of the 480 is just stupid, a bit over 400 watts under load, nearly 900 in SLI, I mean who can power something like that?!
And the temperature... rangeing between 90 and 100c under load with single and SLI setup.

More info can be found at AnandTech

yea i think fermi was one of those things that they know is not quite as good as it should be so they hyped it up to stupid levels. not to say its not an incredible card but i wouldn't pay for it with those numbers.

ill still take the HD 5850 personally.

Eggzackly what I was gonna say. For the performance vs price ratio I might be inclined to go with a 5870, but will probably Xfire my 5770 and still be way ahead of where my gaming requirements need to be.

Yeah but for the money, so would a 5870 or since your cutting your case maybe even two.

My next GPU will either be a 5850 or a 470 (if nvidia decides to drop to the card to a reasonable price) Because the 5850 offers the same performance for $100

To me (someone who prefers nvidia over ati) I see the fermi launch rather mediocre
gtx 470- Decent card not mind blowing but $100 too expensive
gtx 280- Great card but too hot and power hungry/ which doesn't make up for it. also incredibly expensive.

I have more sense than cents... Ati really did it with price performance.
Ati also did what nvidia did 6 months ago and was also cheaper, less power hungry

More info can be found at AnandTech
Now remember that the Kill-A-Watt device shows the PC's power consumption not just the video card, it's pretty hard to get the power draw off just the video card, it's mostly done by software, I can do it that way that's how I could tell Enigma how much the difference in power is between idle and full power.
So, they're running it on an i-7 computer, at the very least it takes 153watts without a video card. Also not very many people ever use the GPU at 100%. That's why I told you what the folders were saying. When I'm folding on my 5870 it runs at 99% of maximum. You'll find it tough to get an exact wattage useage out of anyone official, they just tell you how big your PSU should be, not taking into account 80+ ratings or efficenty. There are only a few games that will run that hard. I, for one can power the system overclocked and running 2 480's in SLI. I don't know if I will, but I can. Unless they get quite a bit better I'll probably just get another 5870 and a cheap card for physx.
Look above, I did link to AnandTech. One more thing. Any card that is a dual gpu card never runs as well as 2 seperate cards running together. For example, if you want the best gaming performance it's better to crossfire 2 5870's than to buy a 5970. When they put 2 GPU's on one PCB there are some things that have to be sacrificed to get it all to fit. On the 5970 they cut the Vreg system, so it can never have the same performance of 2 5870's.

Wile both of these are valid points, the fact that the card actually has the ability to draw that much wattage even if it doesn’t draw that much its cant be that good for consistency on the PSU. I mean sure if you get a good one it shouldn’t be a problem and you may not be able to clock a 5870 as high as a 470 but on a 1-1 comparison I personally thing the 5870 still wins simply because its $100 cheaper and can do every thing the 470 can at less power usage

so bacicly what im saying is Nvidia is 6 months late and 100 bucks too much for the same (ish) card
