I am delighted that my AMD Phenom II X4 955 only draws 55 Watts when the CPU is at 100% utilization doing heavy HD renders. Supposedly it is a 125W part but I have never seen it draw even half that. I do not over-clock, and that is probably why. Even though my whole system is pretty fully-loaded, it only draws about 260 Watts with everything hooked to it according to the APC UPS it is connected to. This does not jive with the reviewer who said you need at least a 400 W power supply. I have to ask him "What all do you have in you system?" He certainly didn't do his homework. Everyone should realize that the video card manufacturer can't predict what all you are going to load in your system.
My wife was having graphics problems with her 1 year old Alienware computer so I built her a backup gaming computer with this card. We found it peforms better than the two graphics cards of a competing brand she has in her $ 4000 Alienware computer.
The only problem we have with this card is overscanning on my wife's computer which also has a ViewSonic VX2835WM monitor but is running the System 7 operating system. The ViewSonic VX2835WM monitor uses an HDMI input instead of a DVI input (like many 28" monitors) and apparently this causes a communication problem between the graphics card and the monitor. The graphics card thinks it's connected to an HD TV instead of a PC. This causes the overscanning which places the edges outside the screen. You can't see the Start button or any icons on the left side of the screen. We don't have the overscanning problem when we use an SVGA cable but we also don't have the benefit of a digital graphics card and monitor.
I haven't been able to get a driver modification to work that supposedly fixes this problem. It involves editing one of the driver files to "enable overscan compensation". I am amazed that the user community has to come up with these solutions while NVIDIA and ViewSonic will not provide a well documented solution their customers need to fix the problem.
Changed Windows score from 4.2 to 5.8 and really allows me to run most anything I've selected at full or very close to full values.....AA not included of course.
I do recommend this to anyone that would like a good focused upgrade for the money that has a bit of experience inside their puters guts. Its NOT a hard upgrade to do, but you should have a clue before you jump in.
DO check your power supply however. I put in a 650w to have plenty of head space on the DC rail for this and other devices, but a 450w is the minimum so don't think your stock issue 325/350 will handle it cause it wont.
Best of luck! I love mine.
Buy the card.
