I myself would wait for waterblocks from other manufacturers - like something from EK. I'm really not a fan of the EVGA watercard blocks (aesthetics), but I guess you keep your waranty with them, its guaranteed, and is going to be out before any others. Just my 2c.

With EVGA and many other nvidia manufacturers you can change your heatsink and still have warranty covered.

These are water cooled so of coarse they will be expensive but even at $649 it is cheaper than the 8800 Ultra when it came out and the Ultra WC was even more. Plus the 5970 is still more expensive and you still don't have a water block.

I wonder how high these guys will go. Maybe even beat the 5970 if they can overclock enough.

I don't know why EVGA would put a Swiftech block on there... Your paying a premium price on a premium card, and if you are considering water-cooling it, than you have some nice cash. Why cheap out on the block? I mean, EVGA, come on - if someone is going to be water-cooling a 470/480, I'm sure they will pay a bit more for a better block. If anyone disagrees, than you shouldn't be water-cooling The last area I want to cheap out/ budget on, is water-cooling.
