    This is when it makes sense to use a dual-PCB design, even though the costs may be higher. The size of that puppy is absolutely crazy!

    I think it may be time for a new form factor for PCs that allow video cards to grow "taller" instead of "longer"...

    Good point, how much is this card going to be bottlenecked by the much used Core2Duos.

    Sorry I had to do it :laugh:

    Anyway I would love to own one but anyone who buys this for gaming is a moron. That is WAY to much money to play crappy console ports.

    I'm sure a lot of people would need a new case to house one of these beasts; so don't feel bad!

    So this pic I posted in the 5870 thread was accurate. Look at X2 length compared to 5870:

    I surveyed my Antec 1200 and believe I'm in good shape. Check out the Asus 4890 TOP, a bit of room left. I'll need to move some cables and use the open middle drive bay to nest them. My SSD's are out of the way in the upper drive cage. A decent case for such a monster:

    It sucks MAN !!!

    5870 is longer than GTX295
    & now its 5870x2 even longer than 5870

    Now of my knowledge its 5850x2 not 5870x2
    Bcos 5870 for there TDP cannot sit side-by side together :nutkick:

    :D

    You'll definitely need a full tower for this beast. I can't even begin to imagine how powerful two of these would be..

    I'll never own one of these, but I have enough room for cards 5 inches longer then these even XD

    What an awesome piece of kit, in an emergency you could use it to defend your home!

    People will think its some sort of ungodly weapon!
