this is pretty cool.. but i'm surprised they put it on a 8500GT rather than one of the 8600's. but i like how they bumped up the clocks on it from regular 8500's. i wonder how much it'll cost?

this a weird, albeit nice configuration. A daughter card to read out speeds and temps. Neat.

Nice idea, but I presume it will cost a lot of £££ yet be inferior to its big brothers. So why bother????

This sort of 'gimmick value' card is aimed at people that go for looks instead of power ;)
