wow that thing is a monster. Ive seen pictures before but none of them were tore down, or at angles. Those coolers look like they could adequately cool a budget cpu @ stock clocks. lol

That is one giant card! I thought my new 4850 was huge, and it is compared to the card it replaced.

Hrmm, newer drivers seem to be reducing performance...

If you go from 8.8 to 810 there is a difference. I think it has to do with the Crossfire profiles used by ATI. If your game of choice has no profile then you get no benefit. Big resolutions are where this card shines.

Great review but this still keeps the 260 Black Edition as my favorite card. I think Nvidia made a healthy comeback agains teh 4870/4850x2's, though they are strong as well. That Black Edition is fantastic
