yeah they do crank out a bit of heat, and the older drivers were **** for CF in a bunch of games, but ATi has been getting better with their CF support in newer games recently... i quite like mine

yeah crysis is the best! And nvidia cards atm are just killing that game compared to the Ati's. But im sure in the updated engine/new release of crysis 2 they will have alot better supprot for ati due to the increase in popularity of ati's 4 series. at the time of cryengine nvidia was all! 8 series dominated, thats all changed now.
