bragging for the most expensive video card that sucks @ DX9 and least number of brain cells in the buyer's cranium

LOL, makes much more sense than buying a silent Sapphire heatpipe-cooled Radeon for almost 1/3 the cost

I don't think even watercooling and overclocking can make the FX 5900 catch up in DX9 benchmarks. For $1000 I could build a complete system!

now thats one of the most stupid things I have ever seen,

great design on the waterblock, they should throw away the card and just sell the waterblock

Hmm.. I dont even see how that works? Is there any active cooling involved at all or does it just swirl hot water around inside the block? :confused:

They should make a prometia NVIDIA5900Ultra for $2000 and ti would STILL get ass slapped by the R9800Pro on air.

$1000?

The card costs $400 to $500 at the most and the cooler is at most $200. What's so special about it?

Or, you can simply get a watercooling kit with tubes and water blocks for both a CPU and a GPU!
