    Wow, a real full-length daughterboard. I haven't seen one of those in a while.

    Considering the X1950's power requirement (30 amp 12v rail!) what the hell do those need, a personal nuclear generator?

    The PSU in the picture has the form of a 1KW supply. :eek3:

    that psu appears to be a standard server-style redundant-blade unit (two blades housed within one enclosure. Nothing uber-fancy.

    Also, the card is not very long... the reason the one pictured is long is because of the fan/cooling unit which snaps on the back of the card.

    In the end, it's still an ATi... So shitty drivers are your only friend. Stick with the nVidia and keep your haircolor.

    Actually, I just installed the new Catalyst suite on my brother's computer, and I can already see AMD's influence. The drivers load a lot faster. Considering that was the only complaint I had about ATI to begin with, I'm really pleased to see it's getting fixed.

    I wouldn't be surprised. If its power requirements are similar to the X1950's it would need over 700w to support just the 2 cards alone.

    As for drivers, normally I would agree with Jolly (I've always been an NVidia fanboy anyway) but the fiasco they have made with their Vista drivers has me wondering if they are not loosing their edge. When ATI and Intel (!) have polished, certified drivers available at launch and nVidia is projecting they won't be completely done with theirs for another few months, I've got to wonder about their current development team.

    methinks power reqs are in the 200-230W range (per card).
