Default Re: How much power does it take on each connection of the GTX 280

If know one knows the answer to that question ,Do you know how much the main GTX280 uses and how much the slave or secound GTX280 uses.I would think the slave or secound one would use less power then the main one.I just want to know what the card needs in power not none of the other componets .I have read somewhere that it uses 237watts under load ,just the card nothing else,and other places say 330watts.I still don;t under why it need a 8pin Express if the two extra pins are negative.
