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

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"...
