I don't bother tying the cables together. My system is cool as it is now (7 fans), and I have no sidewindow. And I buy new stuff a lot. It looks more worse than it actually is on that pics. Airflow can get by easily.

I'm pretty certain it's one for one - I was considering 2 9600s in exchange for my 640, but then grabbed an Intel chipset, so no SLI.

Hey guys, been on here for awhile but havent posted lately, i picked up my EVGA 9800GTX on saturday, now ill be around so much more !

I picked up 2k more compared to my mates old 8800GTS 640MB that was OC'd to GTX speeds on 3D Mark 06 (we plonked it my machine, 8800gts oc'd 11.2k > 9800gtx13.5k stock), its beasty as, I love this thing, and dont regret it...

I've been reading over at evga forums some negative feedback, but they believe it to be drivers, so lets hope nVidia release us some tanky drivers!

i also plan on picking up a nForce790i ultra soon !

I'm getting my 9800GTX through eVGA's step up program. They received my old card (8800GT) today. So hopefully late next week I'll have my shiny new 9800. w00t

I should have mine by the end of this week as well.

Going for the Leadtek 9800GTX, cost me about $470AUD. ($436.539 USD) ...yea...thats really ****ed up guys -.-.

Pointless having the AUD $ so strong against the USD $, if we have to pay more -.-.

Leadtek seems to be the only card that i get a game with. NWN2...
