    See what's not listed? Looks like they've already taken them off. :)

    Fortunately that Nvidia is replacing the LEAF blower as soon as possible with something as really interesting as the 5900
    (to bad that it was not released from the start instead they released the Leaf blower nv30. I would had a 5900 card right now )

    Nvidia made a good move these time but late for me..........
    I hope next time do not Cheat in Drivers or make another HYPED NV30... just to sold their products as is happening now with their latest Dets and with the Nv30

    I'd like to bring two other questions to light regarding this:

    1. What type of PSU would I need to support this card?

    2. Should I wait to get an nForce2 motherboard (which has 8x AGP) before even getting this card? The highest my motherboard can use is 2x.

    You should replace your motherboard first... I believe AGP 2x could really hurt performance. Of course, even so I'd imagine you'd get a large boost from your current card.

    You'll get a pretty noticable performance just from having an nforce 2.

    Hey, you have a slot A board, don't you (Gigabyte 7IXE4)? You'd need a new CPU as well... you can get a good cpu/mobo combo for about $150, however.

    I'm looking into The Abit NF7-S mobo (nForce2) & a Athlon XP.
