    Noooooooooo!

    It looks awesome! It also looks like it could fly straight out of my case! That intake reminds me of a Ferrari Enzo.

    Thanks cbupdd! :toast:

    *Nobody should be surprised, the image from Chiphell has been floating around for a long time now.

    I call fake.

    And if it isnt a fake, then I call DESIGN FAIL.

    No, I don't think it's fake:

    What makes it a design fail? The design looks a heck of a lot like GTX2XX series to me.

    I'm waiting in anticipation for the release of the 5850. Hopefully it will be shorter than this pic of the 5870. Woot Post 100!!

    since there is memory on the back I am guessing these cards will have at least 1gb of ddr5 stock right

    That must be a x2 card because its huge!

    That would smack right into my HDD cages.

    Looks nice though, simple!

    From the looks of it its at least 1 inch wider then a standard ATX mother board.

    Although its hard to tell, it could be more .
