WHAT!NV40 to use a RED PCB!?!?!?[url]http://snipurl.com/58vy[/url]

Whats wrong with Red PCB?? I think it looks cool :) I think the fact that the newer nVidia cards are a foot long, and now need 2 12v molex's is down right rediculious. They need to actually make the technology better, not just stuffing more crap on there.

If Intel begins their naming scheme, that might throw AMD's model scheme for a loop. ;)

It seems the Opteron naming scheme which was criticized at first, works very well in the professional market.It's just a shame there aren't any 4-way / 8-way servers available yet.[img]http://users.skynet.be/fa426454/images/Smilies/nono

Don't worry, by the time you have the money to afford one a quad opteron is as fast as a single new CPU at the time.
Didou said:
Probably but it will still be more flexible then a mono-CPU machine.;)
Rick said:
And more expensive too.. But hey - If you've got the money!
Didou said:
I'll just sell Nodeh's kidney & MrG's eyes on the black market.:D
