With games being cpu limited by the new ATI VPU's what would you do with two of them? If you used two of NV's VPU's what would the power supply requirements be???

Actually, Nvidia's card really doesn't need 480 watts, it can run on 400, even 350. While todays games may be more cpu limited, with new releases HL2 and Doom ]|[, I think that will change. That is where dual vpus will come in handy.

God I hate the whole 'cpu limited' crap. It all depends on settings! There are plenty of things you can do to put a fatter load on the vid card. What does having 2 of them mean? Umm, how bout Doom 3/HL2 at 1600x1200 with 6xAA and 16x aniso, [-peep-].

Damn that would be kick ass!

Me: are you saying I can't provide?
Me: cause I know I can provide.
Me: oh and I can provide money too;)
