While EVGA is really recognised as the premium partner for nvidia cards with excellent reputation for warranty and support, I really think they are missing a trick using standard cooling. The biggest concern for a lot of ppl (imo) when going fermi is that it will be loud due to the high temps, if you want to go gtx460 the msi and gigabyte cooling solutions make them much more appealing.

Yes, we want something like this... not a disaster card------>fermi.

I was just wondering where did you get those drivers?? In the nVidia official page there are no 260.63 drivers... Are they beta or sth?

Regarding power consumption: I think the delta between idle and load must include CPU/memory as well as GPU load. So it's hard to say looking at the chart what the GPUs draw.

How about getting a nice set of CUDA and CAL GPGPU apps that redline the GPUs but not the rest of the system? Using that to measure the idle & load power draw should give better measurement of GPU power draw.
