For the love of gawd EVGA, enough! Enough with the "let's make 100 different versions of the same card with only slight but confusing changes" madness!

I actually have to say I agree here. If manufacturers would quit spending so much money on developing 20 different cards PER tier, and simply invest the time and money into 4 cards per tier (Fast, fastest, super small and really quiet) it seems like there would be a lot less cost that needed to be passed on to consumers, a lot more cards that could be produced (Meaning there would even BE cards available for purchase, rather than shortages every time a new fad or holiday comes along) in an equal amount of time and convert time spent on developing unnecessary models into time spent working on the upcoming generation so we don't have to wait two years or more between new architectures.

A little headroom doesn't hurt. ;)
Especially when using low-pressure ( low-noise ) fans.

In my setup there's an LSI SAS controller right next to the FTW.
A full 3 slot card would either choke or the fans would need to run 100%.

I guess this also makes it possible to use the FTW in a "tight" SLI -setup. :pt1cable:
