That waterblock makes me [insert sad face here]. Why? 197 EUR = 295.99 CAD. Wait...so I have to spend how much on this card, then spend another $300 for a waterblock? Think I might be staying away from nVidia if it works out that way....

I would venture to say that you will probably be able to get a waterblock for quite a but less than 300 bucks for the GX2- it will definitely be more than your typical GPU block, but not 260 plus tax- that said, I would still wait for ATI's next card

Link? They were showing it at Cebit, but I hadn't realized retail availability was coming yet. Thought it had been pushed back (again).

This card will be announced ... today! One of the graphics card makers didn't adhere to Nvidia's NDA - MSI reacted promptly by openly displaying its GeForce 9800GX2.
