It looks nice. The new FX5900U with otes looks even better. I wish more gfx makers would go with this. Go with better high performance heatsinks that auctally cool the card. I could care less if it blocks up 1 or 2 PCI slots.

Heh I knew looks were subjective, I just didn't know they were THIS subjective. IMHO that thing looks like some twisted science experiment gone way wrong. I like big heatsinks, I like big fans, but that big ugly plastic ducting is just NASTY to me.

if only these cards were good in DX9, then i'd actually buy one over a 9600 Pro. Oh well. Maybe the Det50s will do something. if they do, then i'm screwed cuz I jsut ordered a 9600 Pro.

I just bought a BFG FX5900, $237 bucks and comes with a nice blue pcb and heatsink with blue lights, unfortunately all of the pretty heatsinks are on the bottom of the card:lol
