Acording to shuttles web site, this model will support SLI and cross fire soulutions with the best cards. I think the 500 w psu is of quite good quality. So i guessed it would support the gtx 295 also, but i dont know about this. So the Gtx 295 is water cooled only?
Maybe thats taking it to far for the shuttle....I guess a regular gtx 285 or 280 will be the choice then.

Any opinions if EAX 5.0 from x-fi is worth it? I remember the initial reviews of x-fi on Toms hardware. They were really impressed by the 3d positioning quality in headphones (which means you can basically tell from which exactly direction a sound is coming, even with stereo headphones) Not a lot of people are talking about this, but for me that sounds like breakthrough technology for gaming sound.
