    From what I've seen of it, it actually isn't. Thanks to the copper fins(the standard card uses aluminum), and really fast and loud fan, temps actually aren't too bad.

    I like simplicity (and nostalgia!) ..... Hercules 3D prophet 9000 circa 2002/03............... Note how little cooling the cards needed back then!

    80 grams of copper, still not bad when you consider some cards only have 200 or so of allum sometimes :laugh:

    She's got hypermobile joints by the looks of things, her knee is actually slightly hyper extended.

    She's going to age terribly :laugh:

    Look at that box, infinite graphics effects. Too funny.

    in 10 years, todays 8 year olds will be posting nostalgia and images of radeon 5970's and laughing about "people actually paid $700 for that piece of shit!!"

    Though small and slim the Zotac AMP 8800GT has a groovy amber colored cooling fan and an attractive PCB color.
    [​IMG]

    I also loved the look of my ATI X1950: the cover plastic is UV reactive red and the copper heatsink shows through the cover.
    \[​IMG]

    Another memorable hard was my 2900XT...the first e-peener of a card...what a beast. The silver flames on the transparent red cover looked great. And you could see the heatsink...but it was aluminum so not quite as exciting as the X1950. Unfortunately the red plastic is not UV reactive...but still a really nice looking e-peener.
    [​IMG]

    And I almost spent a boatload of coin on the red edition 295 GTX...just because it looked so damn good....but I am glad I didn't. :D

    Yeah CyberDruid, I loved my 2900 XT too, as you can see. Even though it was an underperformer and irritatingly noisy, I've kept it for sentimental reasons.

    Hey that's my wife :wtf:
    ;)
    You really think so? She hits the gym at least 3 days a week and is healthy & quite energetic especially in places were its dark:D. It's bad enough every single guy hits on her whenever we go out together. Even with our 3 year old with us:laugh:

    Too Bad hercules is no longer around, they made a kick ass product

    About the X1950 Pro Dual, I wonder how it would perform with todays drivers, aka a revisit maybe?
