Talking Christmas came early for Alvino!

YAY! I finally got my X1900 XT, Zalman VF900-Cu and OCZ GameXstream. Sorry for the crap pictures. My camera sucks and I can't get it too close or it'll blur.

Both side by side:


The VF900-Cu's sexy mirror polish base:


The R580 core and 512MB of GDDR3 glory:


Everything done and put together:


This is the case. It's messy, I know. The unconventional positioning of the motherboard leaves me no option but to put the power cables like that
I'll clean it up later.

Very nice.

I don't know how to install the fan right on the videocard though. I just use the one that came with it which is OK because I don't overclock.

I don't overclock much either, but I got a new video card cooler because the stock ATI coolers, while being effective at cooling, they're loud as hell. The VF900 is SO quiet. The only thing that's making the noise is pretty much my Delta Tri-Blade heatsink fan.

i dont see why you guys are wasting money on top of the line gfx cards right now when you can get even better DirectX 10 gfx cards when they come out.
