    It does look nice, but if you look at the gpu in the one pic with a system in the case, you will notice that you will not be able to put any large gpu's in that case:(

    A 5850 will fit, a 5870 probably not.

    I had an 8800gt and 2900xt back in late 08', combo'ed with a E6300@3.2GHZ while playing crysis@ 1280 the 8800gt owned the 2900xt plus it made my desk area feel like there was a camp fire around me.
    Its been beaten to death but the 2900xt was a let down for its price.

    (BTW I've owned 3 already well one was a pro teh always turn up when Im in need of a video card:laugh:)

    I forget how much money I paid for the 2900XT, but it was a lot and I was expecting great performance from it. Never happened:shadedshu
    I quickly moved on to 2 3870's and was a little bit happier...

    thats a revised 2900xt (rv670). the 2k and 3k series were really not worth their money. with the 4k series things changed alot;)

    The 3800 series was certainly worth the money in my opinion.
    I had two 3870's :D

    Unfortunately, a single GTX 260 made both of my 3870's seem dumb.

    Actually, when the 2900XT released, it's price was about right. It's target was the G80 GTS and it competed really well with it, and was priced roughly the same. It was a heater tho. And the 8800GT was definitely a better card.

    I'm using a 3850 right now :p

    Wanted to join in XD

    Had a 3870 as well, still plays most games at reasonable settings, not maxed out have to skip on draw distance an AA often but still, I paid 25 quid for my 3850 :D

    Also the stock coolers look awful ( in terms of cooling)

    They have such a tiny tiny amount of actual heatsink!
