    If the power is supplied the correct way, it shoud'nt be of a problem.

    I think i overclocked many cards already on my Gigabyte M55S3 with 75W of PCI-express power. As long there's a decent supply of power like one 12V for the PCI-express and 1 12V for the CPU it should be fine. Not have Both CPU & GPU on just one 12V plug.

    This might be a dumb question, but where does albtron sell their cards ? i never seen there cards at newegg, or best buy , or pretty much anywhere(well one place), how are people expect to buy them, if they are not sold in the US

    I am very much interested in this specific card but no one seems to have it for sale online...
    Any ideas where to pick it up or order it?

    PS: I'm located in Europe, France, if that matters. ;)

    Umm... didn't they ramp the wattage limit to 150W with PCIe 2.0?
    The DFI 790GX-M2RS drops to 75W with PCIe 1.0/1.1 cards and ramps to 150W with 2.0 cards like the HD4850.
    *edit*
    The max wattage from the slot..
    75W = PCIe 1.0/1.1
    150W = PCIe 2.0/2.1 (2.1 is out there, just not adopted)
    Now I am not saying anything anyone has said is wrong, just noting what my board does when a PCIe 1.0 card is inserted on a PCIe 2.0 board...

    Yet the question remains;

    Where to get/order it?
