    Man this is good if users are into liquid cooling and they want to run dual GPUs and they have space issues.

    would love to own one of these bad boys, but the purchase price and the subsequent watercooling loop i'd have to build make it the same cost as an entirely new rig :(

    i wish it was possible to make an air cooled version of this bad boy that isn't running at 94c all the time (and doesn't need an AIO to maintain temps lower than that). however i know this isn't a possibility atm without severely gimping the cards performance.

    Whats the price? $1500-$1800? I cannot believe that Graphics cards are starting to cost as much as a used Car for gods sake! But for the lucky few That have money to blow-why not? Max I would spend on a card $300.

    Why not just give the respect the card deserves. Even if your blind and bleed green.

    Whats it matter what the high end custom cards cost? You said you wouldnt buy one, and its not like if we arent buying a $1000 gpu were not gonna get to play games.

    Personally while its crazy how exspensive they are but
    Its awesome that they are existing like they do now.

    Most I paid for a gpu was $329 for my BFG 8800gts 512.
    I only paid $130 for my current HD 7950.

    I call shens on the "hand carved" waterblock.

    Do you have any idea how long it would take to "hand carve" a water block (no machining whatsoever)?

    Plus, if you have to go to the trouble of "hand carving" a waterblock for each card, that must mean that the manufacturing of the cards is so horrible that they cannot stay within tight enough tolerances to have machined waterblocks.

    I want to see pics and vids of the workers "hand carving" said waterblocks.

    Nope I just like to pay for hardware that actually works as it is supposed to. I don't like half assed products that are overdesigned and just nothing more than an overkill even for the enthusiasts. I read quite a hefty ammount of stories too about these overvolataged power hogs that destroyed a working psu and fried everything on the motherboard. No thanks I rather stick to the most reliable graphic card manufacturer in the world.

    That is a thing of beauty. The question is how much power is it going to draw?

    I doubt that much, maybe 600W, 4 x 8 pin should cover that.

    Unless your intent is to troll, there's no reason to be making such posts in an AMD thread. This thread has nothing to do with NVidia at all. If you're an NVidia loyalists (which you obviously are), stay out of AMD related threads. It's pretty simple. Only ignorant people go into a thread concerning a product they have no interest in, simply to state their dis-interest.

    It's quite funny because you're by your silly definition an "AMD loyalist", now you see how idiotic that sounds?
    Oh Just for the heads up
    I wrote this comment when I was told that I was "blind and bleeding green." :D

    To which you replied

    And you even dare to accuse me of trolling? You're one silly little willie.
