BFG GTX 260 OC use 2x 6pin PCIE plugs from your PSU will be fine, BFG bundled 2x 6pin PCIE adapter. I didnt used the adapter so I used 2x 6pin PCIE cables from my PSU.
Toms review compare the GTX280 as loud as a washine machine under load , and the GTX260 slighty better. That alone have me away from buying one GTX260. Another is the heat. This is a major one ,because i have an heavily overclocked Qx9650 already running close to the max recommended INTeL safe temps .
did you know if the hot air that comes from the fans stay inside the case ?
