because you can not overvolt with the non-reference,... I am not 100% it is a non-reference but if it is the one with the fan in the middle then yes it is.

one word - Overclock - non-reference cards cant do it very much because they can not be overvolted.

It's not like you can buy it for Physx. Lol.
First off HD5870X2 > GTX580 so its not the fastest single card
Second He should totally run it for physX

?????

5870x2 is two cards.... not one... and the GTX 580 is the fastest single card.

How could he run an ATI/AMD card as Physx? only Nvidia card run Physx.

I do not see either of those being a "cable"

maybe the cables that convert the molex to the 6 pin... yes my card came with all the stuff.... but none of it is "cable"


I am guess that is what they are saying though, ... for sale: includes nothing, good day, and good luck

Cables don't have to be round, bro.

Your still goin on about "cable"... LOL, thats just what his add says. If you go to the asus site http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=1LtIlVobSVwQPxMa , Under "Specifications" is says this:

1 x DVI to D-Sub adaptor
1 x CrossFire cable
1 x Power cable
1 x HDMI to DVI adaptor

have a nice day.


I will say this "add" is spelled 'ad' as in advertisement and not addition
