    with those cards, you need at least 18 amps on one of the rails.

    I run an XFX 8600GT. I will be upgrading by Xmas. Either the Nvidia that's supposed to be comming out (if it fits) or the BFG 8600GTS OC2.
    This is the one I have now:

    Good brands:
    Evga:step-up program
    XFX:double warranty
    BFG:good cooling (5 degrees less on average)
