    Galaxy Geforce 6800GT ANd Shuttle SN95G5

    I have the shuttle SN95G5 on order and i am looking for a Geforce 6800GT to go with it, i am looking for the quietest card possible and it seems the Galaxay has a nice cooling system which is pretty quiet

    Would this card fit inside the shuttle OK?

    Hmmm

    I think the galaxy does take up a PCI slot for the exhaust system, but if i am not gona use the spare PCI slot will i be ok?

    As i have no use for a PCI slot atall

    I cant find any firm details on whether the Galaxy does use a extra PCI slot though

    the 6800GT is a one slot card. Anandtech tested it in the SK83G and it worked and fitted great.

    Not all the GT's are 1 slot cards, the galaxy is 2 slot so is the leadtek

    i have just received the MSI one which is 1 slot card clocks at 415/1200 so not too bad atall and its pretty quiet especially when i run the fan at 40% in 2D mode you cant hear it atall.

    I have an SN95, with an XFX 6800GT.......fits like a glove, and goes like stink......plus, if you get the mesh shell that replaces the stock shell (which has only got the poncey drilled holes for ventilation) then you can run it at 400/1100 and still only peak at 64 degrees after an 8 hour games mash!!
