    Even though you will not find any GT200 based cards at their booth, as these have not yet officially been announced, Zotac is showing off a water cooled 9800 GTX. It comes prefilled and is maintenance free. The card is cooled by a 120 mm radiator and the water block is covered by a metal cover with the Zotac logo on it. This cooler has been designed for Zotac and is not a retail product, which has simply been installed on the card. Best of all, the card will only cost around 60 US Dollars more than the air cooled version.

    Another very intersting card is the display port equipped 9600 GT. Even though this card only utilizes a single slot, this one needs two. It has many connectors available to the user, including a Display Port. This implementation actually works under Windows XP and Vista flawlessly.

    A mini-ITX nForce 610i based 775 Socket board is also being presented at the show. It comes with two DIMM slots and VGA connectivity, but DVI is possible and, as you can see, there is an area already reserved for such an output.

    I like it too.

    But I can also see the DVI connector missing even though the location is taped out on the mainboard. Shame. In fact, this had better be a dual-link DVI port... and it had better be installed on the retail version of this board. THEN, I'm a buyer. If only single link, then it had better work WITH the VGA out so that the board can run 2 screens.

    I think these will be available sooner then we think.
    I dont mind the colour scheme. Looks nice, and the maintanance free angle is very appealing. If this does reach my local stores i might have to try one out.
