    Quick X800 Question

    Does the new family of cards have the same layout as the 9800's? I have a waterblock that covers the memory and gpu. I'm going to be buying one of the new X800's and I would like to know if I need to buy a new block as well. Thanks!

    Well, in the "Average Joe Video Card" sticky thread, it said the 9800 pro 256MB is the same as the 9800 xt but underclocked. If you look at the two boards : 9800 pro 9800 xt...
