Do you have any hint why "everyone" does not want an oven in his pc ?..

I personnally expected some more performance from these card, seeing how late they are. But I think that they are well priced according to there performance. If I had the ca$h to buy one, I just could not cause of heat. My pc is in a room on the third floor facing west without A/C. It's about 30+ in here on hot summer days. When I'm using the comp, it's about 3-5 more degrees.. (that was with an athlon x2 + 8500gt ) If I was to get this card, my PC would probably blow up.
