    So, how am I supposed to power an NV40?

    ...short of strapping a dedicated PSU to my Shuttle? Cutting a hole in the side to fit it in is no problem, but 480 watts required??? Ye gods...
    All effort is useless

    If the stock HSF on the NV40 is as big as people make it out to be, you'll probably find it hard to fit it in a Shuttle SFF in the first place....

    I will be intresting to see if Shuttle release a 300W SilentX PSU in response to the release of these cards. I wonder if they have any for testing.

    PCMCIA are developing graphics cards to fit in shuttles from some release notes i found.

    Otherwise, it COULD fit into the shuttle but it'd be touching the case so a bit of modding and you'd be sorted. Power doesn't seem a problem as the 6800 series draws the same amount of power as a 9800XT to be honest.

    I'd love to have a 6800 in my shuttle system though.

    In the end, one would probably have to add an extension to one end of it to fit one fo those Gargantuas
