Purdy.... i love black on computer parts.

I also like how NVIDIA managed to make that a single slot card. Mine used to be a single slot card.... then i messed with it.

Yeah, I love single slot cards. I've never had a double slot one, and I hope to never have a double slot one.

Oops, i forgot a couple. In addition to the one that i posted up there, in my backup rig, i have this:

PNY Verto FX5900se


Powercolor 9600XT 256mb Bravo Edition


^I think that's the 128mb version, but you get the idea.

The first one i posted is an Asus v9999 Gamer's Edition, btw.

Man, i just deleted a bunch of pics off of Image Shack. I have some nice shots of my 5900XT I need to dig up and get on here. AFAIK, it still holds the #1 spot in 3DMark05 using FM approved drivers with a score of 1515.

Nice looking cards man. The green PCB looks just like my 7800GT, and the blue one like my 6800GT. They certainly didn't seem to change too much.

When the 5900U came out this was the second card to hit the market and when I bought it it cost a friggen mint...$550.00.

Yeah, they haven't really changed the PCB's much since the FX series came out, to me it looks like a little minor design changes with a different GPU soldered on although I'm sure they're considerably different under the skin.

Sweet pics of your cards, guys I would post up mine, but my lowly ATI 8500 LE just doesn't cut it anymore (don't worry, an upgrade is about to take place )

I don't care how many people trash talk Swiftech for using molded tops, that just looks good.

I like the molded tops myself, I have both the APOGEE and MCW60 with molded tops................ As a matter of fact, I also have the Storm CPU block and with both CPU and GPU water cooled, I get better performance using the APOGEE and MCW60 than I did when I tried the Storm with the MCW60.
