    Of course it will.
    My dad is still running a Golden Sample GF3 Ti 4200 64Mb
    There was no GF3 Ti4200 if I remember correctly... it's GF4 Ti4200 or even GF3 Ti200 and GF3 Ti500.

    Yeah, I've got a GF3 Ti 200 in a box in a closet...
    Condoleeza Rice is nice but I prefer A-Roni

    That would be correct AFAIK for reference designs.

    Actually,it was Hercules that started the whole shipping Nv cards pre overclocked from the factory,with the TNT1 @ 98/125.I bought one

    Let someone else be that punching bag. All I know is the 8800GTX is working perfectly in a rig powered by a Silverstone ST60F.
    Its easily possible and like you say, its just hype.
    I ran a 768MB GDDR3 SLI 2x XFX8800GTX XXX (630MHz core-2GHz memory) with a 3.65GHz OC'd Kentsfield and 4x1 GB PC2-8888 OCZ XMS2 Twin2X2 RAM, some nifty watercooling (Zalman Reserator 1), over 5TB worth of HDDs: 2x1.5TB (Firewire800), 1TB (USB2.0), Maxtor DiamondMax10 IDE 82GB 7200RPM 8MB Cache, (connected when needed) Seagate Cheetah 73.4GB 8MB Cache Ultra320 SCSI 15,000 RPM, (connected when needed) Seagate Cheetah 146GB 8MB Cache Ultra320 SCSI 15,000 RPM, 2xRAID 150GB WD Raptor 10,000 RPM SATA 16MB Cache with Areca ARC-1210 - PCIe x8 RAID Controller, WD Caviar 500GB..(internal and external), a 5.25" Sunbeam 20-in-1 card reader with a h/ware monitor/display unit, an LG Blu-Ray Recorder (single layer ), an LG CDRW/DVDRW combo drive, a Sony 1.44MB floppy drive in a Thermaltake Armour for professional work; on a Seasonic S12-650 (650W) perfectly for just over a month before moving to the Galaxy IKW. So yes its easily possible for anyone out there wanting to know, but be aware, I recommend 1000W for a setup lie my work system has.

    Kab, OMFG for what work system do you have!
    Thanks for your confirmation about what a 650W good PSU can handle.
