UPDATE:NGOHQ has informed us this story was false, there was something wrong with their measurements..

As you have probably read in the reviews, the new ATI X1000 series require a lot of power, and it looks like these cards in CrossFire will use a lot more than we expected.

According to NGOHQ a typical AMD64 based system with some peripherals and two ATI Radeon X1800XT cards may use up to 740W!

Now that's a lot.
