Nvidia 6800GT's, they are going for around $299 on www.newegg.com.

If you like ATI better, the x800 is a good option, but I would say get the 6800GT.

yeah, the Leadtek heatsinks are really big. they're really good for overclocking.
if you have a lot of expansion card, then you might not be able to use them with this. however most people only use maybe 1 or 2 PCI slots
