The new ASUS DirectCU II cooler is big, red, and menacing. I like it. ASUS has also put a backplate on their card, which provides additional protection against damage while looking great. Height of the card is 14.5 cm and length is 28.5 cm.
Installing the card requires two slots in your system.
Display connectivity options include two DVI ports, one HDMI port, and one DisplayPort. You may use all outputs at the same time, so triple-monitor surround gaming is possible with one card.
The GPU also includes an HDMI sound device. It is HDMI 1.4a compatible, which includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support.
Two SLI connectors are available, which would allow you to combine up to four GTX 780 cards in a Triple-SLI, multi-GPU configuration. NVIDIA limited the GTX 780 to Triple-SLI only, while Quad SLI is supported by the GTX Titan.
