    Thanks for the competition. Now, if only I could convince lots of other people not to enter, to increase my chances, heh!

    On a serious note, it's nice to have a chance to win, even if it's probably thirty-thousand or so to one.

    With the 20% extra height and upwards pointing power connectors it wouldn't even fit in my case.

    This card slurps over 320W on its own through its three 8pin PCIe plugs... and that's without OC

    If I were to win this (yeah I know.. good joke), I couldn't even use it because I'd have to get a PSU in that is even remotely capable of feeding this power hog first
    (and then rip out and redo my entire custom wiring loom...)

    Still much better odds than the National Lottery!

    Thanks again, Hexus.
    I hereby pledge to put it to good use and fold proteins somewhat faster than with R9. I also pledge to upgrade PSU..

    I've heard some good things about this card. I've always had Nvidia cards so would be nice to try something else for a change, and really see how it compares.

    I certainly wouldn't mind this, my PSU handled 2 OC'ed 290xs so bring it on.

    No with 350w you need more like need at lease a 600/700 watt power supply and No it 3 x 8Pin
