the only sparkle calibre I can find is off an aussie site, and it's 1k. I don't know what that breaks down into usd, but if I remember right it was 6 or 700. here's a link to a site with pics and ratings:

not worth it imo...i was looking for reviews earlier and looked at that website already.

Just get the ultra for the price its at now...if your case has good airflow you will be good with the stock cooler.

I've heard that zalman will be comming out with a cooler for the 8800 series, but i dont think its official.

HR-03 PLUS is all thats out for them right now...theyre not pretty looking ,but performance wise its worth it.
Also make sure that you get a decent good and powerful case fan for it.

I'm stuffing it all into the power up air intake II... 250mm fan on the side, planning on adding a blowhole exhaust and already has a 120 mm fan in front, planning on getting a good 120 exhaust for the back too, looking for max airflow so it will create a negative chamber

i do know that the HR-03plus supports sli...but i cant give you a 100% guarantee...im sorrry.

I would wait for someones confirmation who has more knowlege than me.

Also make sure that atleast one card will fit in that case, expecially with that huge fan on the side of it.

the fan itself is relatively thin, just looked at the fan... looks to be about two inches into the case, the case is 8" wide, so looking at roughly 6-7 inches clearence

i think it will fit...but as i said before, i dont wanna guarantee and then screw you over...
wait for a confirmation from b1gapl,apok,peter,vernong,mgcook...etc.

If you havent bought the case already, you could go for the Coolermaster 690(i have this case), antec 900,p182, or the cooler master stacker 830.

already have it... and the EVGA 680i mobo installed into it. I'm getting either the card or ram next, in which case I'm doing the crucial ballistix ram... just seems to have the best reviews here on the forums. getting a ram cooler as well from Xoxide.com - Custom ATX Computer Cases, PC Mods, Computer Case mods, and Modded PC Cases
dimensions on case=
8"(w)x17"(h)x20.5(d)
