    I've heard there is a lot of CPU consumption for this graphics card, will my overclocked AMD Athlon64 3000 @ 2.2Ghz take it? cheers

    Note: i also have 1GB RAM

    I don't really see why a graphics card would use CPU power, unless it's a very old one.
    The problem is if the graphic card is too fast compared to the CPU (the Athlon64 should handle it easily though), the CPU becomes the bottleneck as the graphic card can't send data faster than the CPU can handle.

    But maybe you should ask this on a PC gamer's forum, the guys over there surely know a lot more about that stuff... :cool:
