$359-? I think you got the Cypress edition. Yep, Cypress Pro. You can get an MSI 5850 for $299-.

A word about X-Firing any of the new ATI cards. It's been recently uncovered that if you (like I have) get a 5870 first edition and it's running at the stock speeds, then you get a Cypress Pro which is not amazingly faster but definitly faster and you X-fire them, the faster, more expensive card is going to clock itself down to meet the other cards speed. So be careful out there.

Ok, is the blue one the old vid card? Also have you read anything about the blue PCB that sapphire uses being slower than the reference boards?

Oh flipd, meant to ask have you tested your SSD's read/ write times?

Still not sure if I want 2 5870's or wait for Nvidia to come around with thier goodies.

Man it's lonely here tonight. I have a VA appointment tomorrow, for neurology. Good news, we may have a house! They've accepted our offer, now it has to pass all the inspections the toughest being from the VA. Wish me luck gang. When we get a house we'll have a home network, 4 computers, a server and a security system. Now all I need is some free solar panels to power it all.

The blue PCB vapor cards are the new 2nd revision, they're even shorter than the original one at only 10". They also put in new MOSFETs.

Thanks Meru, new MOSFETs may be one reason they're able to make it shorter may haps be the kind of thing Nvidia is waiting for.
Also Meru, your motherboard isn't listed, what are you running your i-7 on?

Hi everyone, I got my taxes back today and will be building my new system sometime next week, so I thought I'd post some overclock numbers with temps from my current system. I have to say that I'm quite proud of the clocks and temps considering the old school nature of my rig all on air. So without any futher ado;

If you stack a card or says layed it out face to face you're bound to hit a maximum heat dissipation zone where it would take major room to cool these things. Putting them on one long PCB with a high powered cooling duct helps out things quite a bit. Both my computer and Mindy's can run games on a 37" HD TV.

If you haven't heard one and have access to a 5870 through a friend or school or something, go into the CCC catalyst control center, check the box that says ATI Overdrive, click on the key icon, click enable manual fan control and slide that sucker to 100%. Then click Apply. Now you hear the sound of 1000 voices. No, that's the Moody Blues, uh, you hear the sound of what seems to be a Con-Air hair dryer.

Then there's, the longer you make a card, the closer it's intake air will be to the front where most of the cool air comes in on a conventional case. The HD 5970 is 12.5 inches. I think the Nvidia cards that will also have to pack in Physx on the board are going to be longer than the ATI's. That's why Corsair made the 800D a full 24".
Thank you Bri. That all completely makes sense. So I imagine with the onset of SSD drives the conventional hard drive rack will eventually become a thing of the past and video cards will lengthen out to fully take advantage of the front intake fan to further facilitate their cooling.

Thank you for the Clarification. I knew one of you would set me straight because I was just guessing.
