- Gainward PowerPack! CoolFX Ultra/2600 TV-DVI-DVI

Set on picking up a new video card upgrade now that Doom III has been finalised (along with HL-2 to soon follow)? - If money's of little to no concern and you've got your eyes focused on nVidia's current 6800 Ultra king? Definitely check out Gainward's 'tweaked' variant. I don't just mean tweaked either, we're talking fully blown watercooling out of the box which includes everything you need to get the whole deal up and running... you'll certainly pay for this, but it's the one 6800u card you're sure to get the most extreme possible performance out of right now, at least in terms of an "out of the box" experience. Trusted Reviews give you the full rundown including some very tasty overclocking benchies.


If the speed of a graphics card depended on how many words were in its name, the Gainward PowerPack! CoolFX Ultra/2600 TV-DVI-DVI would probably be the fastest card on the planet. Gainward's CoolFX line of cards tailors to those for whom having the latest kit just isn't enough. These individuals simply must own the absolute fastest stuff out there regardless of the price.


To scale these heights, the CoolFX doesn't bother with your run-of-the-mill air cooling but instead uses water cooling to keep excessive heat under control. Water cooling brings two key advantages - first, it keeps the card cooler than any conventional fan, enabling it to be run at much higher frequencies. It's also much quieter, so you can get the benefit of higher clocks without any of the noise intrusion of a high-rpm fan.
