I was thinking of getting the 8800GTS G92, but it may be too expensive. I liked it because of the cooling. All the hot air gets blown outside. I was wondering how one would go about doing this on a an 8800GT? I want to overclock either card to at least 700/1700/2000 (EVGA 8800GT SSC specs) while being able to use it 24/7 and while gaming. Any other cooling options that work well?

Just buy after market cooling sold by: Thermalright, Thermaltake, Arctic Cooling, EVGA, ect.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

There isn't as far as I know. Since most aftermarket air coolers are not "full coverage" coolers and the back plate on the dual slot coolers is different. Anyway, it is not that big os a difference. If you have good case air flow, the hot air will be evacuated anyhow.

Anything else? How is the AC Accelero S1 w/Turbo Module vs DuOrb vs AKIMBO?

So, EVGA 8800GT regular - $238 + DuOrb - $35 (cheapest, don't think possible) = $273. The EVGA 8800GTS G92 is $290. Is it worth just going with the GT for $17 cheaper, or go to the 8800GTS G92 for maximum performance?
