Yeh.... I think now I realize that all I did was just re-state what you already knew. I hate it when people argue over the same thing lol.

It does seem a shame (I'm sure i'm not the only one that's noticed) that even though a card's destined for physx use, it still stays clocked at 3d clock speeds 24/7. I really wish they'd work on that and let it clock down until needed. That might help alot with the keeping the power consumption and heat down.
