There is some merit to mention power draw. The card isn't entirely meant for pure enthusiasts, remember it can also be used for people who do not wish to go with CF capable motherboards. Should Enthusiasts care? no, but there are more then just pure balls-to-the-walls gamers at [H] now too. Its a fair question I think. I think its good that the [H] still caters to its crowed it garnered so long ago from the 300A overclocking results from Quake2.
