one thing i like about this is its beefy. and not just for thermal temps, but most people either run dual SLI or Crossfire and thats all you really need. with this 3 slot spacing, your systems just looks more complete, and hides all the empty slots. just my personal thought.
So any idea on the release date/month??? My money is burning a hole in my pocket and I'd like to upgrade from my gtx460 Direct CUII. Or can you give us a hint on whether there will be a 6950 Direct CU II that looks just as sexy?
