well i have nice green scan lines on my screen at the moment so I ordered a new eVGA 6800 gt from circuit city and was just curious to how much power these things need. I've read about the ultra's needing a lot of juice but what about the gt's?

I had the same thing happen to me. I also have a eVGA 6800GT. You need a GOOD, stable power supply. Once I changed mine to a OCZ Powerstream 520, those artifacts went away. Also, as a bonus, my system peforms much better when overclocking my P4 3.06!
