Also, I it doesn't look like it comes with dust covers. That's what killed my 8800 GTX. Now I have dust covers on all of my intakes.
Are you sure about that? A very high percentage of 8800/9800 cards died due to solder problems. Mine died, and a couple of my coworkers' cards had failed cards.

Well, it's hard to be absolutely sure. But three years in it started spontaneously rebooting during heavy gaming. Then after a month of that it just stopped working. When I took it out, it was choked with dust.
