I am incredibly jealous of that heatsink. I'd love to frankenrig some 120mm Ultra Kaze's to that thing.

VR-zone really should've done some benches at something like 7680x1600 since that review pretty much indicates there is no reason to get 3GB of vram. I figured it'd make a diff with lots of AA at 2560x1600 but nope. The temps honestly aren't even that much better than the stock cooler so that's not much of a plus either.

FSX is also very borderline, hell even iRacing is around 1.4GB...

According to "internal testing" the 3GB will really boost performance for high res displays:

And it even has 1 DisplayPort Although I now have my DP inputs used up by the Mac Pro anyway
Scarily enough, even WoW at max settings will top out at 1.5Gb, and that's at 5860x1080. I require 2 of these cards as well.
