    Sounds ok as is - if the size difference is only small i should be able to slot it in without any problems. Thinking I'll order one on payday.

    It's the same size as the 8800 GT (middle) as well, for reference purposes.

    Yeah I realise that, but I needed HDMI and I'm also a fan of the XFX cards.

    transistor shrink, new set of instructions (DX9, DX10, DX10.1), different ways to do stuff (unified architecture).... etc....

    but some new generations are a pack of ass and crap.... think FX5xxx....

    I've just ordered the Zotac Geforce 9600GT 512 MB(Not AMP!-edition) together with a power-supply, and I don't care what ppl would say, that it's stupid not to take the 8800GT or the HD 3850 instead, or something like that, I just took the one I think would be the best in terms of price/performance
