Default Which GeForceFX 5900?

For all you people who are getting a GeForceFX 5900, from what you've seen from various manufacturers, which one are you gonne get?

Personally I'm thinking to get the MSI card, just because it's cool looks and not too extreme (and sometimes useless) bundle (I don't need a sound and IEEE1394 card...)

Thought I haven't seen the 256 MB Ultra version yet (want one of those, useful or not), but if it looks half the way the 128 MB version does, my money is with MSI.

I think the MSI card looks butt ugly.

who cares how it looks? I care how it runs and looks on screen! It's like if I say my P4 chip looks ugly, who gives a flying **** when it's in a case and you can't see it??!!!

Well, to each his own, but what card do you find attractive?(looking beyond functionality, presuming they all perform the same...)

Windowed case anyone?

But when we presume that *all* FX5900 cards perform the same (because like, they are all *exactly* the same underneath), the choice between different manufacturers boils down to bundle (special features) and looks...

That and memory used i would say LeadTek has a nice card on the way in cooling and looks. Seems most manufatures are using dual fans now.

Have you seen Leadtek's card yet?

Sure we can guess it looks a lot like their GeForceFX 5800 Ultra implementation, but seeing is believing...

I think I am going to skip the 5900, I will wait until Nvidia does something about it's poor AA and Image Quality.
