Excellent. I had a bunch of problems with throttling when I had my GTX280, in fact its probably the main reason I bought a 4870x2 to replace it, kept having weird throttling issues. People who buy $500 high end graphics cards that require 700+ watt power supplies don't care about power consumption Nvidia.
