A water cooled graphics card right out of the box.  The PowerColor X800 GT EVO that Bjorn3D reviews has a Thermaltake TideWater All in one VGA Liquid Cooling Module built right onto it.  The X800 sits in a PCIx slot, like you would expect, and the pump/radiator takes up 2 PCI slots.  Install those, and you are done!

"Today we are looking at something special from PowerColor. Something overclockers will drool at. What if I told you we have a card equipped with its own liquid cooling system?

The G70 chipset, like that used in the XFX 7800GT SLI that Gamepyre reviews, is one of the top cards available today, or perhaps until next week, when ATI releases their newest offering.  If you want to see the most effects in your games, get one or two of these for your system today.

"The 7800GT is a worthy successor to the 6800GT and sell at about the same price point.

If you want OK graphic performance, without breaking the bank. the 2 cards to consider would probably be the GeForce 6600GT, or the ATI X800GT.  Elite Bastards has a review of the Powercolour X800GT, that comes with a good card, and a nice software bundle, including Hitman: Contracts.

"To put it simply, the Radeon X800GT isn't any one new core, or even a cut-down version of any one old core.

Just because you can't afford to switch to a BTX mobo with PCIe, and all the other changes required to get to the current generation of hardware, doesn't mean that you have to suffer through HalfLife2 at 9.5 FPS.   HIS has released an mid level AGP ATI X700 ATI card, and XYZ Computing has the review.


Oh and if you have upgraded to PCIe, I think ATI might have released something today.


"This review is going to take a look at the X700 IceQ video card from HIS.

The PowerColor Radeon X800GT that 3DVelocity reviewed has 256 MB of DDR3 memory, and a 256 bit wide memory pipeline.  It's a PCIe 16x card, that might be perfect for you if you are looking to make the jump to PCIe, without paying a lot just in the videocard.  Plus, it performs well enough that you may be able to keep it in your system longer than you might expect from a middle of the road card.

"It's important to remember that mainstream users aren't people who don't want powerful graphics cards, th

The Asus Extreme N7800GT that NGOHQ reviews may not be the fastest card based on NVidia chips, but it is certainly powerful, and signifiantly cheaper than the GTX, and it can still be setup in SLI.

"This card overclocked better than I expected, I was able to reach the core speed of 485 MHz and 1200 MHz on the memory. The card was 100% stable at that speed and no artifacts occurred.

If you would like to get all the juciest information on the R520 before it gets released later next month, you can head over to Anandtech's "pre-NDA Extravaganza" and read up on a lot of it.  The meat of it is that we will only see a 16 pipe version of this core despite older rumors and that clock speeds on the XT (top model) are going to be at 600 MHz core and 700 MHz memory!  Oh and we will now have two more cards with 512 MB memory configurations stock from ATI by the looks of it.
