what's the most powerful single backslot card?

ok i got an 'old' dell 5100 dimension...but dell didn't think of these moster GC's taking up two back plate slots...so i need a good single backplate card...

i've seen a X1950Pro which looks ok, but does anyone have any others suggestions?

The forthcoming 8800GT is apprently going to have a single-slot cooler.

Otherwise, most X1950pro will have one, as you said, and if you find a 7900GT/GS they should be sinlge slot too.

It's not going to attack him, it's going to attack the graphics card :)

ok, folks, thx for the replies... :) 

i'm using the BF2142 @ 1500x1200 benchie...


it would appear that the x1950 Pro beats the 7900GS and GT...


so the X1950 Pro is the fave, so far...i wonder how much the 8800GT is gonna be?
