The warm air that is exhausted won't really affect anything as long as you have good airflow.
Thats just the thing im a little worried about airflow in my 350d. I will probably end up going reference because i like the LOOK better. biggrin.gif i like the best of both worlds hehe.

Respectfully disagree. I've never even came close to 2GB of usage on my previous GTX 670s. Not even a heavily modded Skyrim could break the 2GB mark for me with settings maxed. Only Crysis came close. But at 1440p, you don't even have to run high AA.

Its not a "must". Its only a nice bonus. 256-bit/2GB is more than enough right now for a single 1440p.

no offense but you think your Q9550 @ 3.4GHz can push today's high end cards.?
I'm thinking you do not need to go past your current GTX 660 without upgrading your overclock at least and more than likely your platform.

2GB is enough for 1920x1200 right?

also is the ACX cooler still the best one? i can't find any reviews on it

2GB is certainly enough for 1920x1200, barring extreme Skyrim modding.

As for the ACX cooler, it's the best one I know of. You should read some of the 780 ACX reviews (TPU, Hexus) to get a handle on it...

Again for people that likes AA (even though it is not quite necessary), you WILL need to go above 2GB.

You won't convince everyone on the AA you know...

For 1080p/1200p and not too insane on the AA, yes it should be fine. I would still feel more comfortable going 4 GB myself though...

ACX Cooler is pretty good. You can see reviews of the ACX on the GTX 780 reviews.

If he can overclock it some more it should be enough.

It depends on the game.

Crysis 3 when i max it at 1080p uses 1.8GB of gpu ram.

it's got to be 4.0GHz or above and I still say it's a little on the weaker side because it can't get higher than that without upper level cooling.
