How much power does the 9800pro use?? Does any one also know how much the NB uses on average. I know the XP 3000 uses around 73 watts. Thanks

Dunno, but if your trying to map your power needs in prep for buying a new PS, then I would simply grab an Antec TrueControl550.

It will serve you very well and you will never need to worry about power issues, unless you plan on running a pelt or somthing along those lines.

I not looking for a power supply. I'm just wondering how much power it uses? I have a Raidmax 420 power supply and it has been working out great.

i hope that's true about using the 3.3v and 5v lines. i plan on getting a
9800 pro (128MB), and my 12v line is pretty taxed at the moment.
my 3.3v and 5v lines have power to spare.
