    Wonder how long it will be till we get coolers for GPUs that take up three slots. Imagine a fan on the front and back of card pushing air out the back.

    So you could have heatpipes take heat around the back and front and have seperate silent fans cooling and pushing air out side...

    Nice idea...

    Wait, GDDR5? So that means that effectively the memory is running at 4GHz? I think they've just solved the 128-bit bus problem of the 4670. Either that, or it's only a typo

    Hmm, they made some effort making the card look sexy inside your case..Why dont they just cover the whole card to improve aesthetics like the nvidia 260's and 280's for the sake of the price of like, erm, some plastic?
