That Video Board needs it's own case.
I bet in the next few years we will be seeing fully external video processing units to replace cards all together. They will figure out some kind of adapter that connects to your PCI EXpress slot, then mounts to an open PCI slot with connecter, then a high speed cable that will connect to the external video processing unit. (dubbed - XVPU)

GIG's of DDR3 memory
All kinds of pixel shaders & trillions of transistors...
Liquid metal cooling system...

It'll cost like 1,500 dollars or something...

I dont know if this update was added after you guys read it, or if you missed it. There is still hope that it can run on a Ultra-D. Good thing it doesnt have to run on an ASUS board as well...
Yeah I did see that, it said it 'should' but hadn't been tested yet on another board.

That thing is nice, but they need to work out the size issue and it won't be popular for a while since they'll probably cost $1000+.
