Managed to scan part of the 8800gtx manual for you....

Awesome! LMAO!

Sweet... now I just need to get 2 more power supplies, lol, nice pic.

I think theres an adapter on which you can plug the card's power to the wall socket.

I heard that if you buy one, nvidia will come to your house, build a hydro dam in your back yard to power this. Also, if you have no access to water (who doesn't have a river in their yard?), they will install 10000 solar panels on your house.

No, I upgraded to a nuclear reactor.

Haha :lol:

mao...thats awesome...great image

Yeah, but thats part of the new after market power stations that will be popping up once people realize that the stock hydro or solar solutions just aren't enough power to keep the beast going.

Also, look for a large migration of computer enthusiasts to the arctic to get maximum cooling. This will cause global warming to increase 10 fold every year until 5 years from now when all human life will die.

Beat to the punch on the solar panel idea. hehe

I actually do intend to look into it if we move next year tho into a more permanent house. But that card will probably finally put nVidia ahead of ATI in GPU power consumption hmm proud moment for them, LOL.

Only if you have a 220 amp service, lol.

Same here. :lol: 

LOL, 6 power connectors, nice. I'll just have to connect to the sun to power it. :lol:

Hmmm.. How many rail power supply is that again....
October 30, 2006 6:16:28 PM

Probably at least 4 dedicated 20A plus rails just for the GPU not including other system components. So not that much........lol

Well, look on the bright side, funding for cold fusion research has been waning in the last few years, hopefully this new GPU will jump-start research and funding. Tokamaks, here we come!

Tokamak's would be hot fusion.... :p 

The cold fusion was supposedly made on a labbench in a glass bottle or something. ;)

1 8800GTX worked fine with my 430W PSU

its done quite a few 3DMark 2005 and 2006s no problems

my 3dmark score were nothing to write home about.. prolly coz of my opteron 146

Right, Tokamaks are hot fusion, I didn't mean to state it quite like that, sorry. Aren't they building one in like France of all places? And did they ever do any more research on photoemission following bubble collapse? That was starting to look promising a few years ago, but I've heard squat since...
October 31, 2006 6:48:00 PM

Just called North Korea, sending me a new nuclear reactor this week! Now theres the issue of fitting it into my house.......... 8)

and of it working......

Ya, they are building it in France altho most of the industrialized world is chipping in on it. Tokamaks will have huge problems with radioactivity if they ever manage to sustain the fusion for a longer time though.

I think ppl are still doing research on the bubble-energy, altho I think they arent sure if they get a net gain in energy. I think I read somewhere that the energy gain they measured were so low that it's within the margin of error for the measuring instrument.
