These cards are great news for Folding@Home. You can help too while supporting your favorite hardware site team 32407. Not to mention we happen to have a folding contest going on till 9/08/08 with some gear up for grabs and theres still time to get in the running. Do the good ole copy paste with the linkage and good luck.

Just a nitpick, but I hate when the marketting droids say $59.99 == $59.

Could they not afford the three extra characters?  Are we too stupid to realize that $59 is not the closest two digit approximation for the price?  Are we going to go nuts and completely change our purchasing decisions if we realized it was actually a dollar more?  While we're rounding down, let's just go down to the nearest ten and say they are $50!

I'm sure there's some psychological study that proves this pricing method works for some products over some test groups, but in general it seems to assume a lack of intelligence in the consumer.

Okay... okay... I'll go see someone about medication now. Stick out tongue

Get a flux capacitor and a nuclear reactor and you can power it for a year?

 

I've really soured on Nvidia cards in the past couple of years due to the amount of power they require to run a single high end card.

Both ati and nvida have horrible power requirements. 1200 watt PSUs are crazy!
