Some come with an 8-pin converter, some don't. For example, with the 9800GX2, based on my research, makes that come with one: Gigabyte, Asus, BFG, Sparkle. Makes that don't: Evga, MSI, Gainward, XFX.

yeah, thats badass that they started to include the 8-pin pci-e converters, i have a 700 watt psu and that should be good enough for the 9800 GX2 or GTX 280

Looks likes its about a half inch longer than the 8800GTX, they really need to stop making them longer, I have a full tower that won't even fit my 8800GTX, though this comp has a giant server case with plenty of room, I can imagine if they get another inch or two longer this might even have problems.
