    I don't like the side ventilation grills. They mean that a lot of the hot air will be vented inside the PC case, which is something i absolutely hate.

    ATI's 4870 on the other hand will not be like that (i think). I hope they stick with the 3870 cooler which blows all the hot air OUT of the case and add a couple of heat pipes for good measure.

    I don't like the cooling solution of the 4850 either as i didn't like the 3850's.

    If you want you could wait and slap on water cooling for it.

    Hmm...having 2x HD4850/HD4870 in crossfire may yield you more performance per dollar since your board supports crossfire

    yes i know but i don't like multicore GPU, at least in my case, i rather

    have a strong single GPU solution, that's my rule!

    always pic the best single card on the market!

    i had Ultra, GX2 before and i've made a downgrade to meet GTX 280

    power




    Cheers

    Geforce GTX 260 final specs


    Slightly slower

    Nvidia’s second GT200-based card will also be available for sale in
    about six days and here are the final details and clocks. Geforce GTX 260 is,
    as well, based on 65nm GT200 core that has 1.4 billion transistors, but this
    time clocked to 576MHz. Some of these transistors will sit disabled, as
    GTX 260 has one of eight clusters disabled.


    The Shaders are clocked to 1242MHz and the card has a total of
    192 Shaders (what used to be called Shader
    units are now called processor cores)
    .


    The card has an odd number of 896MB GDDR3 memory clocked at
    999MHz (1998MHz effectively) and this is enough for 111.9GB/s
    bandwidth.
    The slower of the chips has 28 ROPs, 64 Texture
    filtering units
    and 36.9GigaTexels/second of texture filtering rate.


    If you look at these specs closely, you will see that GTX 260 is the same as
    GTX 280, but with one cluster disabled. If GTX 280 has eight clusters, GTX
    260 ends up at seven.


    The card has HDCP, HDMI via DVI, but this time two 6-pin power
    connectors
    ; and launches next Tuesday.
