    Yeah you can always overclock the 2gb memory to 4gb, and overclock the three volterra slaves to the point that the fourth appears. It's never worth it. You may as well overclock the stock 400 watt vapor chamber too
    blibba says thanks.

    Make around 200k a year and you'd be surprised what you'll start slipping into in a couple years.

    That's on sexy card. Next article: "OMG, single GFX break 600w barriers" or so I thought.

    3 slots wide. 3 power connectors. Ouch!

    My PSU could handle this card but my wife would not like the electric bill. :laugh:

    Probably about 80%. I know 3 people locally who have 2 of 'em.

    Heck I have the X1950 "UBER" edition pair, Toxic 4870x2, paid the same price for both, and have never even put them in a system...
