Can we even take advantage of something like that though? It looks massive.

It's the latest and greatest stuff. I love it. I say, bring on the competition. Here's a quick look at the system req. to run this bad boy:

Minimum System Requirements

>> Internal or external PC water cooling system
>> Tubing with a 1/4”, 3/8”, or 1/2” inner diameter
>> 1GB of system memory
>> CD-ROM drive
>> 50MB of available hard disk drive space for basic driver installation
>> Microsoft Windows XP (32-bit) operating system
>> A PCI Express-compliant motherboard with an available PCI Express x16 slot
>> A 450W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 30A or more*
>> One 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector
-or-
>> Two 4-pin Molex power connectors


NOTE: For the power requirements of two GeForce 8800 GTX-based graphics cards running in an NVIDIA SLI configuration, please Visit www.slizone.com for more information
* Minimum system power requirement based on a typical PC configured with an Intel® Core™2 Extreme X6800 processor


1GB of RAM?!?!?! You got to be kidding me!!! Wow...

Thats one serious card! Shame you need a watercooled PC to take advantage of it...

Its also a shame theres no Direct X 10 tests you can download to test how good these cards would be on Direct X 10, yet of course, there can't be yet.

Even though it is a Direct X 10 card though, but will exceed at Direct X 9 games. Will it be like the early Direct X 9 cards, that when Direct X 10 games finally come out, it won't be able to run them very fast?
