[QUOTE]The physical card itself is quite large and approximately an inch and a half longer than an AMD ATI Radeon X1950 XTX based card. It requires two PCI Express power connectors and occupies two expansion slots [QUOTE]

Does this mean that you need a mobo with 2 PCI E slots?

Wait, it does not mention that the card is DX10 capable....

Is it?

Graham, It is DX10 capable.

Milleniumtiger, what it means is that you will need 2 6-pin PCI-e power connectors from your PSU. It has nothing to do with 2 PCI-e slots. A 2 slot cooler means that the HSF on the card is so big that it takes up the space of a slot beneath the graphics card. In laymen's terms, the cooler on the card is as "high" as the HSF on the 7900GTX, or double as "high" as the HSF on the 7900GT. Clearer now?

Inferno, it is expected to be released on 8 November, which would be Wednesday if I'm not wrong.

only 1.5 inches longer than the x1950 series... so i have no doubt it'll fit in any full tower case

maxing out a quad core....triple sli = 1500W PSUs eeek

I just priced out a system that could handle a g80 and crysis = $2300 provided the card is 600ish


I think I'm done with gaming PCs. The xbox 360 is ridiculously great value when you compare it to this nonesense!
