    Looks very impressive!

    Still cant figure out why they dont flip the card round, so that the fans etc are on the top. That way the likes of us with screens can show off the tasty top of the card, as opposed to just a circuit board. Can anyone fill me into why this doesnt happen?

    it all comes down to traditions

    back in the day with Slot CPUs (Slot A etc...) the area behind the add in slots (PCI which later becomes AGP and then PCI-E) was very tight, the Slot mounting for the CPU meant the cpu heatsink/cpu ate up all the room, so naturally all add-in card heatsinks and the components face the otherside.
    This has continued to this day.

    Right now certain motherboards have large chipset heatsinks that would get in the way of rear facing GFX heatsinks.

    A 2GB GTX 285 promises to be very tasty indeed - although I can't say the cooler does anything for me.

    Can't wait to see some benchies at higher resolutions

    Does anyone know when we can expect this in stock in the UK?

    Just a shame that they've left it a stock-clocks, with that cooler it should very easily get up to the eVGA FTW's clock settings.

    Re: News - Palit launches custom-cooled GeForce GTX 285 with 2GB of GDDR3

    Has anyone managed to obtain one of these Palit 2GB GTX 285 cards yet?

    Lots of sites in the UK seem to be listing this. At prices comparable to 1GB 285 cards too. They even list it as "In stock". But seeing as none of these sites seem to be mainstream resellers, I'm more than a little suspicious.

    So, does anyone have one of these cards and if so, where did you get it from, please?

    Many thanks.

    Ian.

    so that they're getting the cooler air from the bottom of the case, away from the CPU, RAM, NB etc.

    Update: I am now in physical possession of a Palit GTX 285 2GB graphics card. Purchased from AWD-IT.co.uk who were quite helpful. I look forward to installing it and firing up GTA:IV. Possibly the only current game that can take advantage of a 285 with this much memory.
