I cant even imagine what water cooling will do. Idle 20s load 30. MY GTX 280 @ 738 never broke 45c even during furmark on water.

I'd love if you could test the Asus voltage tweaking to see if it's worth it or not. If it is I'll probable get an asus 5850.

I'm looking forward to this review as well. If you have Batman, could you test it to see how well it handles Physx?

To the best of my knowledge- can't do PhysX with ATi hardware.

That's why others are using Nvidia cards for Physx.

I know... but it sounded like DD was asking for Mike to see how well the Radeon5870 handled PhysX. I was informing him that's not possible, to the best of my knowledge.

I really would know the following:
What about the idle power consume with two (ore more) monitors attached?
There ist NOTHING to find around the net and the behavior of nVidia and the GT200 really p... me off!

Does the idle power keeps down with more than one monitor?
Thx alot!

After checking out a few of the EyeFinity demos, it was a tempting offer.

If NVIDIA's consumer next-gen supported similar technology, I would probably go for it.

Graphics card successfully installed.



Graphics Software Information



Graphics Hardware Information





Desktop Settings - Mode



Desktop Settings - Color



Default 3D Settings







Default Avivo Video Settings







Default HydraGrid Settings



Default Overdrive Settings



Check out the GPU idle temperature of 36C and fan speed at 21%. My window unit air conditioner is cranked up and the computer room is a chilly 65.1F / 18.4C and the humidity level is at 47%.

I'll take another reading at a reasonable room temperature shortly.
