And tell me again just what chassis this will fit in? They would need to bundle it with the proper chassis and power supply just so the polar ice caps wouldn't melt.

NOT an official NVIDIA card guys.

Galaxy is known for producing their own custom cards which is why it isn't under an NDA unbrella liek the ACTUAL upcoming cards.

In addition, if you look at the high def pics, there are no actual traces on the PCB itself. This looks to me like it was produced as a marketing tool so people start talking about Galaxy a bit more. ;)

What's next? Time to get a backup generator. Actually, with the power draw from this baby hydro should be catering to your every needs. Time to make hydro the backup gen. Liked the 5970, another beast, but maybe you can save $ on heating bills in the winter. You're gonna want to save that for AC costs in the warm weather months. Now, how to pour water on this for a sauna, ideas anyone?

Wouldn't a dual GTX 470 card be WAY WAY WAY over the PCI-E power spec?
I don't think that card can actually run properly.

this wont work for sure...it's pretty funny to see how Nvidia and their manufacturer try to pressany juiceof the fruit. A chance they still have some Nvidia fanboy to buy 2 or 3 of their card all the time.
