I noticed something very interesting about the minimum spec on BFG GTX 260 packing, here is a small print about 525W PSU minimum requirement. The small print say that 525W is based on PC configuration with Core 2 Quad Extreme QX9650 CPU so I really dont worry too much about that as I use dual core Athlon 64 X2 4400+ CPU which used 101W at idle and 250W at full load with GTX 260. Same thing goes with 4870, you really dont need 620W PSU for that with my CPU.

Anyway BFG GTX 260 is a fantastic card, very silent, very cooling than both 4870 and 8800GTX.
