    Here is a article about the ATI's competition to the GeForce8800. It's over a foot long! It's a short read and has 1 pic for you. Check it out. R600

    Holy god!
    "The power consumption of the card is huge at 270W for 12" version"

    I'd need a new psu, and I already have a 550W! I don't think a footlong video card will fit in my system either..

    It does seem to be on the extreme side of things, doesn't it. I too would need to get a new PS because I also have a 550w HiPro PS. Maybe someone can mod it to get the size more manageable. Happy Modding to ya.

    The whole computer will become modular, now that would be something to do. A modular pc, very interesting.

    hmm... that would be cool... but you would have to have at least one huge box for the mobo. Unless you custom built a Mobo, or used a micro atx or itx
