[citation][nom]Pei-chen[/nom]It won't fit into my Antec Solo/P150 case. I don't know why they can't trim 0.5 inch off the card. [/citation]
Because they're not ATI.

Obviously Nvidia doesn't care for short cards-but ATI does.
Since one of those won't fit,why wouldn't you just get an Palit,HIS,or Asus ATI card?

"Newegg.com the BFG Geforce GTX 260 starting at $259.99, after a $30 mail-in rebate, and the BFG Geforce GTX 280 starting at $374.99, after a $30 mail-in rebate."

Correction:
Newegg.com has the BFG Geforce GTX 260 for $289.99, with $30 mail-in rebate, and the BFG Geforce GTX 280 for $404.99, with $30 mail-in rebate.

That sounds A LOT less misleading....

Well if you were just a little bit more proactive you would have found this product on Newegg.com for $259.99 after rebate.

I would be inclined to take advantage of this deal if Far Cry 2 didn't ship with SecuROM. As much as I want to play Ubisoft's fine creation, I don't want my computer to be raped by Ubisoft with their giant SecuROM gayness.

At is absolutely no better! My 4870 still collides with my harddrives because they were too dumb to put the pcie power jacks in the same orientation as my old 8800gtx. The gtx had the power plugs face upwards, whereas the ati card extends the cards length by forcing you to apply power from the end of the card.

I have to agree here sadly. While I bought the original crysis dvd, I never actually used it, cause the version on dc++ came without drm.

"GTX200 bundled with Far Cry 2". Wanted a GTX200 for a little while. If it's bundled with Far Cry 2, I might buy the game.

:-D

(FTR: should be "Far Cry 2 bundled WITH xyz". Thanks.)

EVGA and canadacomputers had the same deal for a while, with vantage also.

Just thought I would let you guys know since eVGA has been so nice to me.
