No, those pics are fine. I've seen them all over the place. Gizmodo had pictures and they're reliable. The 8800's heatsink is huge and ugly, in line with NVIDIA's traditional heatsink designs.
Pictures of this 'big, long as hell, most likely heavy as hell, power-eating, electicity bill surging, heat producing and fugly like no other' video card. Remember, this is probably the reference design.
Yay, getting one will definately save heating costs for winter considering these damn things produce so much heat. I, Alvino, salute NVIDIA and ATI for pushing the thermal envelope to a new high and for forcing me to upgrade my PSU. kkthxbai.
That was sarcasm by the way.
