Hah well it would make a great bottleneck benchmark. I'm not sure the psu is up to snuff but actually the tsp is pretty close

True story- I had some cheap 500watt PSU. Well, I was curious what it could take so when I purchased my dual 8800s on launch day I tried powering both with that PSU.

Needless to say, that PSU is with us no more. 8800s are still goin' strong though.

Must have been a super cheap crap psu as those cards barely draw over 100 watts each load.

It was. It was some crap company named Superflower or something like that, came with a case I had bought some years earlier. I didn't really care thought as I'd already purchased the PSU in my sig which obviously was far more than sufficient.

Love this card! Only complaint is that for some reason I can't increase my Mass Effect settings over what I had for my GTX480 without making it unplayable.

I currently force 4xMAA and 4xSparse Grid Supersampling and any increase on either fronts causes the game to start to preform like ass. It plays smoother but wish I could increase the settings a bit.
