ATI Radeon X1900XTX

My recently purchased ATI Radeon X1900XTX PCI-Express video card arrived via FedEx today.

I can't believe how incredibly heavy this thing is, thanks to a large card-length, copper heatsink and fan that take up two full card slots.  With it's 512MB of DDR3 ram running at 1550MHz and core clocked at 650MHz this card runs very hot.

I haven't benchmarked the card, but it's definitely an improvement over my previous Radeon X800XL.  I'm now able to run the game F.E.A.R. at full resolution with all the graphical details and effects turned to their highest settings.  

Now to go back through my stack of older games and see how they look with everything maxed out.
