    The headline is certainly sensationalistic. Anyway if this were true.....
    That could mean that if you’re upgrading to the new GPUs, you can’t just simply slot the new card into your motherboard’s PCIe – you’ll also need to get a new PSU with cables for the new connector.
    I'd think we'd of seen newly designed power supplies hitting the streets already considering NVidia is one of the biggest consumer GPU companies in the world. I'm not going to say there won't be a new connector, but I will guess there will be a sort of "converter" cable included with the cards. But....

    Well I hope my EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 80+ PLATINUM PS is big enough to handle this card, time will tell.

    I could throw a couple in there if i wanted but think that's too much work besides they don't even carry half the product i use it's all mid -high range with the exception of TR

    At this point if this is how it's going to play out might as well buy a used 2080ti not like im playing 4k anyway
    I just need something to drive my games max on 3440x1440 that's all so mid range is good enough for me

    Getting the best is getting ridiculous plus these cards probably won't be had till next year sometime the market is going to be all F-uped !

    I'm sure the 1000 watt version is enough.

    Anyway if one has to upgrade their power supply to get one of those cards then than cost of ownership is actually the GPU + PS. Example $799 for the card + $200 for a PS would actually make the cost of card $999.

    But, as I said before, I doubt you're need to get a new PS, but rather an adapter cable should be included with the card. Or in the case of most modular power supplies, you may be able to get/buy a separate cable for the card(s).

    Your assumed prices are way to low. The Nvidia RTX 3080Ti will go around 1300 to 1400.00
    My Evga 1200 goes for around 325.00 ....unless you think a cheaper, lower power supply will work....which I doubt.
