I have a Phantom and I think it is a very big case. HUGE for a mATX board.
Also, it does not come with a 200mm side fan stock. It has the option for one but only comes with one exhaust in the top of the case.

I think you are mistaking LucidLogix Virtu with LucidHydra. Virtu uses the processors onboard graphics when the discrete is not necessary. Hydra enables crossing ATI and Nvidia cards natively.

ok ,that explains
Thank you +1

Finding them might not be easy though.
Point of View is in the Netherlands.
I just asked them whats the difference between their A1 and A2 revision 2GB 560TI, and with the A2, they went back to the reference 560TI cooling, with some wierd fan


I am still not sure what to buy... the EVGA 2GB is way too overpriced. But even the PoV 2GB costs almost like a 6950 with TwinFrozrIII, wich is simply a better card..

Hardforum did a few reviews of Nvidia surround and ATI's Eyefinity and various times they mentioned that 1Gb per card was preventing them from maxing out settings on high resolution 5760 x 1080. That's not to say you can't do it, but if you want the best performance I would do 2Gb cards. That being said, on the GTX460, all the reviews on the 1Gb versus 2Gb cards stated there was no difference, but IIRC that was not in multi-monitor setups. This is why I would personally opt for a single HD6970 now and then later on add a second one if you needed it and once the prices came down. Either way, for now on a single 1080p display, any of the cards you mentioned will be fine. You could do a single GTX560 1Gb card for now and then just upgrade to the latest generation when you decide to do multi-monitor if you do not plan on doing it for a year or so. Save the money that you spend on the second card ($200) and use that in two years and you will be able to get a much better setup, while in the meantime you will be fine on your single monitor setup.

haha, you got me!

Sadly though, I decided to go back to the H80 for now. I thought about going the custom water cooling set up route for about the last 2 weeks but to do it the way I would want would require a lot more effort and (more importantly) money than I feel comfortable spending at the moment.

My new H80 will be arriving today so I'll be back at somewhere between 4.8GHz-5GHz. I'll save the loop for when I can comfortably spend a bunch of money on quality parts.
