Glad to see these FINALLY dropping in price.

Anyone know how much more power these consume over an 8800GT??

not that much more really, what PSU do you have?

Quoted from a Custom pc review site.......

"Under full gaming load, and armed with a standard GTX 260, our Core i7 test rig drew 272W from the wall. Swapping it for the GTX 260 (rev2) raised the figure to 281W. The GTX 280 was significantly more power-hungry, with the system munching its way through an incredible 369W when gaming. The GTX 280 also runs extremely hot, so you'll need a very good case to prevent the GPU from overheating."


500W and above you will be fine

Just read the "AMP" 260's draw upto 370W.
