Heh dont bust your card man. I'd stick a case fan ontop of the cooler to lower ambient tempature. Anyway. Not bad. Not bad :)

I just got myself a Zalman Heatpipe GPU cooler from Will (guy I got the CPU from) aswell as an MSI FX 5200 which it's currently on
yeah those are pretty sweet, the one that eternal11 gave me is grey but it's still kickass, keeps the TI4200 cool, well i have no idea (no heat sensor) but it hasnt f'ed itself up yet soooo....

Chris: I put an 80MM case fan beside the videocard keeping the heatpipes cool to the touch. About 40C full load at 600MHz. I'll keep stressing it though, just to make sure. :p

and of course so is my 6800. hurray for 256 bit!

Yes taking a step into 256 bit memory interface is a big bloody deal. Watch as Anti Aliasing becomes way more usable 22.3 Gigs of bandwith and 3900 fillrate? With the possibility of modding? suweeet :) Though if you mod it 16 pipes you'll be severely bandwith limited. You'll still get a performance increase ;)

Especialy at 1280x960.
I too have a 256-bit 6800, but as an added bonus, it has 256Mb RAM too. Did you manage to score a 256Mb one?

no, i didnt. the cheapest 256mb 6800 was around 50 dollars more...so i figured i'd just get the 128 one.

Ah well, it doesn't matter much except in HR with FSAA. All it means is that instead of being able to happily do 1280x960/4x/4x, you might have to drop to 1024x768 or knock FSAA to 2x

yeah. and to be honest, it really doesnt matter to me. my current monitor will only display 75hz at a max of 1152x864...but if/when i get an LCD @ 1280x1024...that's a high enough res for me to stop caring about much AA. so i think it works out :)
