wow, that motherboard has a terrible layout for video cards. you'd think they would have put a PCI slot in between the AGP and PCI-E. your options are definitely limited. make sure you have a side fan on the case no matter what you do.

On the bottom slot?

But I want to try the Artic Cooling. It has four heatpipes and a (extra) large surface so I can attach a 120mm fan.

Or are you talking about the top?

if that Zerotherm will actually fit in a single slot application, i don't think i've ever seen anything that looks like it will cool as well as it. maybe put that on the top card and a Zalman on the bottom. that way you'll still be able to use three of your PCI slots, or keep one of them open to leave breathing room. i believe all Zalmans are dual slot setups.

Yeah, I've heard great things about that cooler. I actually really want one (since it is so quiet and cool).

I'm getting an Accelero S1 for the bottom card.

edit: now that I think about it, is it too big to fit in a Cooler Master Centurion 5?

Yeah looks good, but is it better than the Accelero? (well, it's more proven definitely)

Wow, I'm spending $60+ on VGA coolers!
