  1. Like the reviews states ; if you can afford it . . . Extreme ! The extra vram will be usefull i think in future games.
  2. This could make your decision even harder ;

    Just came out yesterday , in order to find out what this card is you need to go to the Evga site ;

    I'm filing a complaint , that they didn't come out with this card sooner(before I bought the Hydro Copper 2)
  3. They're MAAAAAAAD !!!!!!! :pt1cable: 4 way sli with nitrogen, o yeah, o yeah. :love:
  4. I most certianly would have gotten 3 of those with the water blocks(Hydro Copper). Those water blocks have a small fan inside
  5. I would just get a 1.5gb unless you are running higher than 1080P right now. Hopefully high end 600 series come with 2gb of ram.
