When tested the 6800 worked on a 350 wt. and 400 wt. power supply fine. I can give you more details if you want.

I refuse to believe that. You show me proof. True nVidia cards will run Doom 3 faster than Ati, and that's a qoute from the game developer himself.

You think that's the same case alienware uses airox? It looks nothing like the alienware cases. Am I missing something?

Yeh if the motherboard supports dual channel it's apparently much quicker (I'll soon find out DUAL CHANNEL KINGSTON DDR 400 W/ HEATSINKS ON THEIR WAY!) because the motherboard can access each module similtaneously or something...

Although the 9800XT and (my) 5950U are reasonably similar.. Atleast I know I'll be able to play Doom 3 well, lol.

If you want pure speed, get two 36Gig Raptors, they are slightly cheaper to buy than the 74Gb version and you can put them in a Raid 0 array, Same capacity and double the speed.
