    I've been looking at the X-Fi systems, primarily because of the "Crystalizer" headphone enhancement (all of my listening is done through 'phones) and also to eliminate the awful DFI daughtercard placement.

    I cannot claim any special expertise in sound or videocards though, which is why I rarely make recommendations regarding them...I simply don't know/care enough to research the fields.

    Wanna talk about cooling?

    Didn't think so.

    Yuppers.

    The new 90nm AMD chips run very cool and don't require much in the way of special treatment.
    Video cards on the other hand have gotten hotter and hotter, although my (limited to three) experience with the 7800 series shows me that nVidia did something right as they seem to be quite a bit cooler out of the box.

    If I told you there was some great pr0n hidden in the links of Sprocket's thread would you be enticed to go back and read it all?

    I think there will be future generations of graphics cards that use 90nm or even smaller. Cooler running, lower consumption and faster. Something to look out for.

    dunno....I am pretty lazy
    you'd prolly have to make it popup on me or somethin,
    then I'd feel obliged to investigate further....

    You'll have to figure out how to "make it popup" all by yourself, thank you.
    Puberty helps.
