[url=http://www.sudhian.com/showdocs.cfm?aid=315]These guys[/url] go into detail on the connections for the card, heat problems, PCU requirements, and moreso, they mention why the new 5800 may not top the Radeon out by that much :p I didn't get to read all the info, but if the card is longer then the 4400, needs a Molex to run, I will not be interested, Especially for the Price, that reminds me of a company that was around called 3DFX, and we know they aren't around much anymore :p [quote:76e435706f] So why does NVIDIA need such an elaborate cooling setup? The obvious answer is that the cards put off a lot of heat (up to 75W actually). [/quote:76e435706f] That's ~10W more then my CPU :lol: I'd watercool that in a heartbeat, but the avg user should not need to look to watercooling just to run a card anywhere near properly :p

The card was actually made by the 3dfx employees NVIDIA bought out, well wasnt totally made by them but they did the bulk of the design Geforce FX= Geforce + 3Dfx

I figured as much, but still saw some crazy 3dmark scored w/ 8x anti on :) So I may have spoke a tiny bit too soon, I want to see more data about it tho :P
