    Saw that in Maximum PC, but it said you could not buy it in stores, it had to come in a computer package. The one I saw was a 6600GT though I believe, but looked just like that.

    Either way, it's supposed to give the power of SLI in a single slot. Too bad you can't SLI two of those :dead:

    You won't need central heating if you have one of those :)

    You don't with most x86 based computers anyway ;)

    So when you getting one EP? I know you can't resist :p

    Yeah, Asus are on the go now too.
    which makes me think there was a reference board anyway.

    Remind me how this works please someone.
    Can you use it on a normal PCI-e slot, or do you still need a SLi mobo??

    I'm not good at PCI-x yet, but perhaps it will be available as both AGP and PCI-X don't see a reason why you would need two PCI-X slots for one device.

    I dont know about this one. But gigabytes worked in regular PCI-e slot, and because its dual-core you CANT use it in a typical SLI configuration...

    It still has great performance for the overall price difference between SLI and a dual cor card
