it's great to hear you say that. are you sharing any power cables between the video card and any other components? i just installed my card and had to share some power cables with the card. i guess i could make some other components share and use two exclusively for the card.

this brings up a stupid question. can i harm my new card at all by having it underpowered by sharing cables with other components? or will i just have screen corruption, lockups, etc?
