Let's hope they get the drivers right for this one. You hate to have to wait for "drivers to mature" to enjoy such an expensive card

Looks like a beast of a card, but not sure about the cooler when half the hot air gets dumped in to the case. Some sites show HDDs can heat up to 40C if they're behind it directly. I guess it's not much of a problem for cases with the intake fan in front of the HDDs, though.

Looks purty but at 700 smackers... it is definitely to rich for my blood. Besides, almost all the FPS games I will play will be console ports so I doubt I am going to be able to get the full effect from it.

I may consider one next year when they come down to about 150 bucks.

It would be fine in my case since the hard drives are on the right side of the case and the mobo and video card are on the left.

Yea some cases I imagine it won't be a problem, like with yours as well you have the intake fan blowing straight on to the back of the GPU as well.

It's depressing looking at reviews of the latest cards now and my GTX470 is now at the bottom of the benchmarks in less than a year.
