Ditto. Though I admit to trying to open the box, and being confounded by its design. Is there a way to open the box without destroying it?

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

1 - i got the 7900 for 250

2 - the gx2 performs terribly when using stereo 3d, from what ive heard. you have to disable SLi - and even then a 7800 will outperform them - the 9xx drivers are rubbish apparently

3 - the 100 saved from the cheap 7900 will get put towards a G80



edit* i wasnt aware of any modded drivers - link please?
