    Just got a 9800GTX replacement for an old 8800GTS 320MB that died. It has 2 PCI-Express power connections. My PSU has 2 PCI-Express connectors, but are on the same rail, is this ok? Is the 9800GTX getting enough power even if its on the same rail? btw, i have a 500W HEC Raptor.

    yeah the two PCIe connectors on a 9800GTX only use about 5-6 amps together...should be enough room for the other components on that 19A rail in your system.
