Well something better start happening as this could really hurt nvidia sales.. especially now that its gone over to the PC P&P.

So we now have 3 of the biggest power supplies being made affected... Antec, Corsair and PC P&P

Only three? Nope. Go back and read the Antec Rep's post again.
Corsair, ThermalTake, Enermax, Rosewill, OCZ, XCLIO, and Silverstone as well.

I think it's great that the PSU reps are posting this info, but speaking as a guy who's been sitting on a new build for 45 days and counting, waiting for an answer, it doesn't help until Nvidia goes public and commits to a solution.

This is issue is making me very uneasy about buying an 8800GT and I may just say screw it and pick up a HIS Radeon ICEQ3 HD3870 instead.

Sorry for the cross posting. Since people might be watching one of several threads that touch on the same problem, I figured it would be OK to post this important update in each of them:

For anyone that is experiencing the "Low Power Warning Message"

These are the 169.44 drivers that are supposed to resolve this issue. I haven't had a chance to test them myself yet.
