this is a great card, there are machines on sale with 2 8800gtx's for about 3k from the likes of mesh. i am just wondering if this lot would fit in my case! This card stands out more than most not just because it is higher performance but because it embraces directx 10 and up and coming features of vista. i am not a pc geek but this card still seems exciting to me, the thing that puts me of is having a monster 1kw PSU and a PC that sounds like a dyson - and i wouldnt consider the complexity of water cooling.
