    Hmm, not bad £20 for a few more FPS but i dont like the temps on it as its getting close to the 4000 series and its a big increase for what you get over stock. That game bundle really is just one game, warmonger is now a free game (i downloaded off fileplanet awhile back) and its like crysis but worse in terms of performance(I love crysis tbh ) it was laggy for me on a 8800GTS OC G92 so it will be pointless imo.

    Average overclocked card which shows the normal stuff. ANy chance of you lot getting a 4850X2 power reading?.

    I'm not a fan of Inno3D after a history of faulty products from them.

    It doesn't exactly instill confidence in the customer when Inno3D only trust it with a 2 year warranty, when companies like BFG have lifetime warranty as standard

    Re: Reviews - Inno3D GeForce GTX 285 OVERCLOCK: raising the bar in more ways than one

    That 4850X2 really is the card to buy in the top end cards atm (although if you have a crossfire motherboard then 2x 4850's or 2x 4830s make a very good alternative)

    Anyway as to power draw see this review http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/S...850_X2/24.html obviously that is whole system draw rather than just the card but it gives you a good idea of what to expect.
