Don't even bother buying a 8800 GTX or GTS unless you have a monitor 24" or bigger. It's way too powerful for anything less, so you'll just waste power and electricity.
If you ask me, I could care less. It's godly powerful, obviously, but it looks like crap. That has to be one of the most cluttered PCB's I've ever seen on a video card and it even puts my X1900's PCB to shame. The heatsink is useless along with all of NVIDIA's other stock heatsinks. The GPU die is FREAKING humongous. Anandtech even put an Intel Kentsfield CPU in comparison and this die totally engulfs it. The PCB is LONG, very long...if I'm correct, I believe the GTX is about 10.5-11" and the GTS is about 9" in length. If you ask me, it looks like NVIDIA cares only about power and nothing else.
At least it'll be a great heater for those of you who hate winter or live in cold places.
Hah, and you can thank NVIDIA for officially making the PlayStation 3 obsolete even before it launches.
