    I think the amazing thing is the included "Water block" . Other than that, they are trying to beef it up to make it worth a look. I hate companies that do this.

    Because this is an 8800gtx and you have an x1800xt. Those P4extreme whatever chips clock up to 4ghz, does that mean the Core2's at 2.4 ghz are slower? :banghead:

    I wonder if the 625mhz they are talking about, refers to the shader speed or whatever it is called.

    Because they need the space for the Water Cooling I believe, just incase anyone tries to clog up the area - correct me if i'm wrong though :toast:

    But besides that, It looks like a bad ass card.. eVGA has to be one of the kings of design, their boards and their cards look amazing, you can only hope they live up to the expectations of the 8800 series.
