    Waiting desperately for ati 3870, my card started to lock down despite its accelero x2 cooling fan (no artifacts though)

    For comparison, the x1900 is sucking 134w when peaked.

    The upcoming HD 4870 looks very promising, too. It's ridiculous and annoying that the mac version of the 3870 will come out at about the same time...
