    Let's see the pictures :) I hope it doesn't look like "everyone else's" 9800 XT Card. When do we get to see what it looks like?

    I was hoping for another "blue" board with some more cool blue lights but I guess I can't have everything. Looks pretty good otherwise. I wonder if Hercules has made any changes to the cooling design other than the picture :?:
