I think it looks pretty cool and that's a great price but geez, too loud for me.

I would pick it up if the 40mm fans didn't scare the shit out of me. I really don't like high pitch fan noise. It's not just the DB level it's the pitch

Can I suggest something for the reviews. Your format is cool, but, can you add more cards in the comparison graphs?
Its always cool to see what the performance is for higher end cards with the likes of mid and low end stuff.
Say Gigabyte HD 7970 Vs 660Ti or 660... Gives a price vs performance info as well. I always end up going to guru3d for that much detail
Thanks

Great price but the whine would get to me. Wouldn't fit my case anyway unless I removed the upper drive cage. I don't think a video card should use more than 2 slots anyway :p

SKYMTL benchmarks cards which are considered competition for the card being reviewed. It doesn't make too much sense to see how much better a $400 card is than a $100 card at 1600x900. He also reruns all his benchmarks for each card in the review every time there's a driver update, which seems to happen every 2-3 weeks for the Nvidia cards.

It won't have warranty right from Gigabyte? Since they don't sell them in NA.


EDIT: Gigabyte

I'm actually very surprised this card hasn't been sold yet. That's an amazing price...
