That is definitely the EVGA 8800gts 320mb, what a cow! the thing is huge, and I thought the old ATI AIWs were big...discrepancy is a lot smaller, any more guesses?

HINT: look at the lights....they are tough to see because of the flash on the camera, but that is the giveaway.

my GTX was longer than a GTS if you think that one is big.

so far as I had heard, the 320mb gts didn't come in a black pcb version. I guess things changed.

Well you should make a work log on how you are modding your Antec 900! :laughing:

Sooo close...they shipped me ballistix tracer RAM but charged me for the straight ballistix which is what i ordered....still not sure if I like the mix of yellow and red lights with the blue from the Antec 900 and OCZ PSU....I think 4GB would be cool but not so sure about the 2GB.

There's no performance difference is there? Between ballistix and ballisix tracer? The timings are the same....anyways, still trying to decide if i should return them or not.
