Is it me or are the graphics cards getting way to big? Almost to the point where they won't fit in any case besides a full ATX tower. I own a Raidmax Sagitta 2 case, and I believe even a geForce 8 series won't fit into it...

Yeah, its just getting ridiculous that video cards require a huge cooling fan because the chips they produce apparently overheat than the usual limit, and I heard a three slot cooling fan may be needed in the future - you thought a dual slot cooling fan was bad enough already.

Bleh, you small fry!

That's not a card, ... Now THAT'S A CARD!



BTW, the new cards are about the same as the last generation's card (GTX a tiny bit bigger), and smaller than the X2 and GX2 cards.

Now that's big mate. :) 


They may be getting heavy, but are not long compared to VLB graphics cards or an SB16.

:)  What about Matrox?

I just scraped 12 old (486 and classic pentium) machines and three ancient phone boxes I had buried in the basement and the two graphics cards and the SB16(far right) were among the pulled parts I held onto. 4 hours later got 28 bucks for the light iron scrap. :sarcastic:  Spent $21 of it at Mickey D's cause the kids wanted their Kung fu Panda happy meals. :pt1cable:  Still gotta go take a big box of PCB's somewhere. The huge SB32 awe was one of my oldies though. Anyway, at least I recovered some storage space.
