A single GTX480 approaches the power consumption of a GTX295. Three 480s certainly will use more power than a pair of 295s. However, 1000W will be enough for an overclocked i7 rig with three GTX480s.
It would be nice to see some numbers and exactly how much power they're drawing on Full Load (Furmark), both SLi and TRi SLi 480's......the folks over on the Evga Forum are figuring an HX 1kW would be borderline for 3 480's....and not recommending it, then again some of those guys always steer to the "conservative" side.


btw...see the 470 SC versions are back up for Pre-Order at NCIX.....hopefully the 480's will be back up for Pre-Order soon.

Ugh.

Hope this is not true:
Nvidia GeForce GTX 400 Yields Are at 20% - 30%, Further Delays Possible ? Analysts - X-bit labs

400 series at 20-30% yields? Looks like my 470 might be a collectors item.

Nvidia has very limited supply of Fermi desktop/notebook parts and yields remain poor at around 20-30%

Recently ATI already announced that it had shipped over six milion DirectX 11 graphics processors since late September, meanwhile, according to Rajvindra Gill, Nvidia has supplied less than ten thousand of its GF100 chips.

Hope mine plays nice with the 260's in my gpu box. I am a little worried about adding it into the mix before chimps challenge because of the different drivers needed.

Thats a negative. A new client or core is needed, but rumblings in the folding forum says its close....

Oh man, I want a GTX 480 now. I know it's $100 more but the damn thing does better with AA on? Holy smokes at 1920x1080 this thing would absolutely blow past any game. Heat and power, well, meh. Wait wait, someone convince me otherwise. I should get a 5870 though, right? Dammit...

Who's getting one of these for sure?
