Ummm...can I move to your house? I always have the inside scoop on video cards, am fun to be around, and have good taste in liquor and eats.....

I'd say 2-3 of these will be better for me than a Quad-SLI setup with the rumored Dual-GPU card. I'm heavily VRAM limited now...

Can't wait to see this :cool:

But Tri-SLI would be very tricky, especially with the TJ10. Hopefully, that won't be necessary. Can't wait for the first reviews of these 3GB cards :)

I thought you had water coolers?

Can't slap em on this sucker?

Admittedly, that is one fat cooler lol.

Palit (they own Gainward) seems to have their own version which looks to be a 2 slot card.

Also, watercooling might be difficult since it probably won't have a PCB compatible with blocks designed for the reference models.

I'm considering buying two of these myself, just sold one of my 480s anyway. Hopefully other partners will follow suit and then there might be some interest from EK or DD.

Edit: Wheeljack already posted a thread about the Palit card with the same link

You know, I remember that it was basically yesterday when I bought my GTX 470s and they were awesome. Now they are "meh"...

Yeah Gainward Rocks. Wish we could still get them here.
