I don't see much sense in returing the one that you already have unless you're concerned about temps and can exchange it. The first one that you mention uses the AKIMBO cooler from EVGA an effective solution to further reduce temperatures, however it uses 2 slots so its really a matter of whether having less PCI or PCIE and overall temps are a major concern to you.

Picture is wrong but it has a dual slot cooler

just curious... video card require 12v 26a power supply... but not many 500w power supply have it...

my friend's father's computer have 500watts ( 12v 18a)

so what do you suggest?

CTA December 27, 2008 05:58 PM

never mind... found out that 12v1+12v2 and 18a + 16a = 12v and 34a so i installed it and it works prefectly...

my friend's father is pretty happy about it...
