Because, obviously, the card is incapable of rendering DX9 games?

I will be getting either one GTX or two GTS, depending on performance.

my current PSU won't be able to take two GTXs

Holy ****, thats definitly not what I expected when I signed on a few minutes ago. Does the GTX really have GDDR4 memory?? The dual SLI connector doesnŽt surprise me all that much since I already speculated about a possible SLI bridge bottleneck, especially if you consider the new physics abilities of the G80 (which can be SLIŽed as well).

I will get a single GTX for a new C2D rig with 2GB.

Well looks like watercooling the GTX will require a full coverage block or two chip blocks...

Full coverage blocks probably won't come out for months (not that I like them really)

If you want chip type blocks instead of full coverage, the second speculated physics chip (although it might be a PCI-E bridge) has non standard mounting holes so we will have to get custom one for that.

Looks like we will have to wait for watercooling these. DAMN!

This card looks quite impressive! BUT I'll wait for benchmarks and a comparision with ATI's R600 before I deside which one shall grace my PC. Exciting though all the same

Congrats to Nvidia for getting their card to the market first!

also congrats to nvidia suprising everyone with unified architecture, something that ati wasn't expecting.

btw, who wants to break into nvidia HQ, and snag few of these?
