you don't need a new psu... as long as you have one with good 12v rails you have no problems... unless yer an overclockin addict and take it to the max :D

mine is 450 nominal, 510 peak and i have 28A on the 12v rail... stability has not been an issue (at least since I cleaned out the redundant entries in the registry :D )

if you have a decent 12V rail, you should have no problems... I got a solid psu for my a64, and fortunately it runs the ultra no probs :)

That is a kickass price, but when most GT's do Ultra speeds with less power requirements and all that, I wonder what the benefit is?

yea i started gettin all pissed that i paid a little over 400 for my BFG 6800 GT and then realized that i can hit the same speeds on my 6800GT with a 380W PSU. that made me feel better, and less suicidal :D

Ultra's do more than Ultra speeds. They can do Ultra EE speeds. ;)

That's with the instant rebate. With the Mail In Rebate, it goes down to $350. That's cheaper than a 6800gt.
