Power Comsumption on 6800's and higher cards
This may be an odd question but do the faster cards pull a ton of current even while surfing? I don't game much, but when I do I like to see detail and my old 9800 NON PRO doesn't deliver the goods like before so I am thinking about a 6800GS. The hold back is that I don't want a waffle iron at my feet while surfing, which is what I do 99% of the time.
Edit- Yes I'll need to swap the board as well.
Never deprive someone of hope... it may be the only thing they have.
