GeForce FX 5900 XT uses a single-slot cooler that gets along just fine with Shuttle's nonstandard AGP slot layout. The 5900 XT's cooling fan is nice and quiet, too.




About performance, this card doesn't give very satisfactory results with Direct3D based benchmarks when antialiasing and anisotropic filters are enabled. For example see these measurements with UT2003:

dont forget that Nvidia uses the XT extension not for its top of the line cards, but for it slimmer cards, i.e. like ATi's SE extension.

btw: anyone noticed that a 9600se is actually slower then a 9200?

Hi qrazi,

I know current nVIDIA range of gaming cards so I spoke in a provocative tone to get your replies and ideas .

Good continuation to all.

:) okay, for some ideas: 5900 XT --> 193 euro, 5700 ultra: 198 euro.
based on dutch pricewatch. so a 5900xt offers better price perfomance... dunno about overclock potential though.
