3dmark06: 4218, from 2304: An 83% increase in performance coming off a temporary 6800GS because I just built my rig about 1 week to come over to PCIe.

I knew the 7900GT was coming but I needed something until it launched. Before that I had a Ti4200 since it launched (may it rest in peace).

Time to pwn.

I'm the man.

Who's your daddy?

You want some of me?

Congratulations on your new card, but I still can't help thinking that I'd feel jipped paying money for such a puny looking heatsink on a card like that.

I would have been impressed if you had two, for SLI. :p

Just joking. I don't even have a 7-series. Good for you.

For real... either the new GPU dissipates heat increadibly well (or has none), or that is ONE KICKASS heatsink.

The new cooler looks like a mere infant compared to the cooling unit on the 7800GTX.

How's the noise levels? ;)

I heard they are noisy which was why i picked up a 7800GTX silent card over it. can't beat that cool 92mm fan on the card for air cooling :)

There is no noise. Not anything ridiculous that I can hear over the regular fans, cd reading, hard drive access.

That's the only complaint I have with this card: Girly man cooling. The GTX version is a monster and looks like it just kicks ass.

Here's some screenies of HL2:
