a couple of pictures of cards covered by giant heatsinks.
look, I'm totally addicted to dailytech and love it, but is a couple of pics of heatsinks with no recent additional information news? I'm kindof annoyed at having had the last five minutes of my life wasted. please use a little more discernment in the future and ask yourself if this is really even newsworthy.

Oh the 1950pro on AGP is news, the G80 thing is old news yes, but you can't deny that the other half of the article is newsworthy.
I know I won't be buying any vid cards for quite a while, but I'm glad to see quality cards being made for past-gen systems that are still valid, because eventually my folks will want their computer upgraded and that's what they have, past-gen tech.
Realistically, we're not going to put a 1950pro in a sempron 3100 on socket 754, maybe a 1650pro, but not 1950. But for those that have say a sempy 3400 on socket 939 with integrated graphics and an AGP slot, this could be very interesting to them, especially as Vista nears.
