Actually, I heard Nvidia is shipping a Mr Fusion reactor with every GeForce 8800GTX. You see, news from Nvidia's R&D say the challenge was to find a large enough power source to actually start this GF card! Rumour has it, it requires 1.21 GigaWatts!
Naturally, Mr Fusion took up Nvidia's challenge and developed a micro version of their infamous reactor for the PC desktop market. Like previous designs, the reactor feeds on garbage.
Please note, the reactor supplements the existing PC's PSU. It does NOT replace it!
