    Wow! 1GB with a 8800GT....this would be an interesting comparison with the 1GB DDR4 variants of HD2900 cards. Cool n Quiet...NV style. One of the first non-reference designs with a 8800 GT. Finally NV reached the 1GB mark with its desktop DX 10 line.

    It will be to expensive for me... but still, it is a VERY, VERY nice card!! Of course I would add a fan of some sort to blow air across the card. :)

    not a bad idea, especially if u have a fanless psu (antec hybrid), it would be really quiet.

    the only downside i see about this, is if u had a card like this in a case that has very poor cooling its capacitors would get too hot and likely leak out causing lots of problems.
