    Ok.. Well, it seems to me that the SLI certification for.....

    G8800GTS SLI is 12V @ 55A with two PCI-e

    G8800GTX SLI is 12V @ 60A with four PCI-e

    Maximum power consumption of the 8800GTX is, as I had assumed earlier based on the PCI-e specification sheet I've seen, 225W per card.

    This is CRAZZY!

    This setup will probably blow the fuse off my home's power box.

    I'm glad we had all our home's electrical circuitry and breakers brought up to code during the renovation two years ago.

    Okay, so for those that want to run 8800GTX in SLI you need a psu with 60A total, with four 12V rails? Or just a psu that has 60A total with four PCIe connectors on it? I'm guessing the latter. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around number of rails needed for all these new cards.

    Or do what 9 out of 10 do and just copy and paste my shit.
    That's why I value your opinion, I look at it like this "there are lots of people who like to think they know"

    But your in a different league my friend you actually do know! You do this by hard work and and so gain the knowledge you have, I'm just pleased I know to come over here for the genuine honest advice.

    Keep up the good work Jonny it's very much appreciated.

    Just 60A total on the 12V or 12V's. Can be one, two or three......

    Need probably won't be near as high as the recommendation is from NVIDIA as always

    Dailytech's test of the G8800 GTX shows that they WAYYY overestimated the power requirements for this card. With a quad core cpu and a G8800 GTX under full load, the system was only pulling 321W from the wall. With 80% efficiency factored in, a little less than 400W. That's WELL under what everyone was thinking. It's only using about 4% more power than a 1950XTX.

    I don't understand why you'd need 4 PCI-E connectors, wouldn't the molex adapters work? If they do work than I'm willing to say that you can easily get by with two of these in SLI powered by something like the Corsair 520W.

    You have to read what you read in context.

    Like I stated this in another thread where the DailyTech article is linked...

    The 8800GTX did not use much power to run the apps DailyTech ran. Yes it ran these apps better than the X1950XTX, and the power consumption it required to run these apps is minimal considering the increase in performance. But I seriously doubt that any of these apps are capable of running a G80 at it's full potential. It's probably going to take at least a year for apps to fully utilize the power of the G80 and by then, we'll all be here talking about the G90 and tri-GPU's with max power consumption of 300W per GPU. Mark my words.

    Okay, thanks Jonny. Now I just gotta start looking and comparing at all the 60A+ psu availble now and in the coming weeks.
