Maybe so, but consider those with multicore processors use much of that.
Mine adds up to 72A together (1010w). I don't think I have enough. I'm running a GTX 295 now, so it might work anyways, but it's an older discontinued model and my setup has lots of peripherals.

Just noticed this board requires PCI-E "2.0". That's a first. That should get a few people to upgrade their motherboards.

we'll see. I'm on the fence between ATI and Nvidia this time. I lean toward Nvidia as the drivers are more consistent and SLI seems to work better and more often.

I surprisingly just sold my 1yr old gtx 295 for $520 on ebay! Thats actually more than i paid it. Not sure to go fermi or revision 2 5970, will wait to see some reviews I guess. Ati gives me issues with underscan on my panasonic plasma though.

Dont tell that to my two PCI Avermedia A180's that work 1000000% better than any of the dual tuner PCI-e cards I've tried.

On that note- does anyone think the new Fermi boards will have onboard audio?

If this box is correct with its claim for 7.1 channel audio (the box does have an inconsistency with its stated memory for the 470), then it appears that the new cards will indeed have an onboard audio controller.
