WOW! Just think about it! TWIN EVGA 8800 GTX cards on a WaterCooled EVGA 680i Mobo, running a Vapochilled X6800 Core 2 Extreme CPU! YEAH BABY! FTW!

I wouldn't upgrade if I were you. That's to the point of splitting hairs. Yours outta do just fine. It's good that yours is quad-rail; it's easier to dedicate power to the cards that way. I would run as few drives as you can, though, because it still might be close if you decide to go dual GTX's + GPU-physics.

I haven't decided yet which one I'm getting: the GTS or GTX, but I'm most likely going SLi. My budget after all of these water-cooling parts is about to explode, already. And there doesn't seem to be as big of a gap in performance between these models as there was last-gen (768MB/640MB , 512MB/256MB).

Either way, I wish they would hurry up and come out because I can't think of anything else and am starting to waste away in front of any computer I can find looking for any new G80 news.

I forgot to ask you tho, does yours have the 4 PCI-E connectors? If it does, and you can find where your power-draw on that PSU is coming from for each component in your system, then I'd say your chances of being okay on that PSU are very good.

If it doesn't have the four connectors, then it's going to be very tough, I think. If you go GTX's, that is. It would mean you need to make two y-adapters from 4 different molex cables--and by that time it starts to get really confusing as far as power-draw location is concerned.

That is a pretty retarded statement and actually exactly the opposite. If anything it is more difficult to "dedicate" power on multi-rail PSUs. I am not saying they won't work (especially since the GTX has two power connectors), but it is obvious that specific PSU harness connectors run off certain rails. When there is a large single rail there is no need to worry about what connector is on what rail...

You sound really uninformed. The comparison was never drawn between single-rail and multi-rail PSU's, now was it? I was drawing a comparison of multi-rail PSU's, since slawter already owns one. Believe me.. I know how all of this stuff works; I was preaching to guys for months to go with single-12vrail PSU's because of the distribution problems with amps on multi-rail PSU's a few months ago, but with the advent of triple and quad-rail PSU's, those problems are becoming less and less as long as you have at least a pea-sized brain sitting on your neck and can figure out what PCI-E connector is pulling from what rail.

Single-rail PSU's are all good and fine. I own a Silverstone Zeus ST56ZF that has 38A on a single rail. But in the long run, they are less efficient than splitting up the power draw among multiple rails. Single-12vrail PSU's usually have less combined amps and have to push more wattage to get the same amount of power as multi-rails.

As long as you know where the power-draw is coming from on the PSU that you are purchasing, you are good to go. Here is a good review from JonnyGuru's site on the Silverstone Zeus Quad-rail that I just ordered. If you notice, every one of the PCI-E connectors are labeled so that you know where your power-draw is coming from. And 3 of those quad-rails can be used for your graphics cards--giving you a combined 54A (minus what goes to your drives and case fans, which usually isn't much.)

http://www.jonnyguru.com/PSU/ST85ZF/

When I originally said quad-rails made it "easier to dedicate power," I was talking about compared to dual-rail/tri-rail PSU's, because one rail is taken up by your processor alone, and another rail has to run your disc drives, mobo, and other components like case fans, for example. With quad-rails, you can split the graphics on another rail all to themselves and not have to worry about all these other interferences with the amp-draw on whatever rail the graphics are sitting on.

But thanks for your expert, "retarded" advice.

Dang I can't wait to see what EVGA's card looks like.

I've said it before and I will certainly say it again: SABERSIX1 WILL NEED HIS OWN RIG THREAD!

Sabersix won't be the only one with a kickass system. I'm sure Jakup, myself, and a few others will have something to say about that.
