How much would an 8800gt need on one 12v rail? IF the only thing that the power supply was running was the card?

You'll need about 18-22A on the +12V Rails. It consumes slightly more power than an 8600GT does.

The bold is what makes me impressed with this card. It needs little power to get great performance. :)
