The rest of the X1900GTs on NE sell for $250+, so this deal is *very* hot.

By hot... you could also be referring to 61C IDLE in a 26C room on that stock cooler, stock voltages, and stock clocks.

I have a VF900 for it, but it really shows how unneccisarily hot these things are getting.

While this may be true with X1900's single slot cooler, The stock x1900xt/xtx cooler performs better than my vf-900! :eek:

I don't think Unnesessarily is the word I think they know what their doing in terms of making video cards.

Yes probbly because of the fact that it blows hot air out of the case, if only Arctic Cooling made a NV Silencer for the X1900 series..
