Yeah, it will take up the first PCI slot as well as the AGP slot. Go look at ABit's OTES cards for an idea of what the cooling will look like.

Mind you, a lot of people leave the first PCI slot empty to aid airflow and overclocking. I know I do

there is supposed to be another version with a standard heatsink/fan that will only take up the agp slot. BUT it is supposed to be clocked slower also.

BTW, there hasn't been any word on Thief 3 in some time. I wonder what the status on that game is.

Yeah.. I can't wait for Deus Ex 2!!

Alright...but if we throw in that one, we're throwing in Thief 3, too.

Those Deus Ex shots from the other day looked AMAZING!

Let be honest...all the early adopters will be buying this card for ONE game.

looks like it might take up a pci slot too, oh well.

I was under the impression that with the heatsink / fan attached, it would take up both the agp and the first pci slot.

GeForce FX Benchmarks Revealed on Maximum PC (thanks Elfin) users in the new era where we wait ...

Users in the new era? I think you may mean "ushers", unless I'm reading the sentence really wrong.

We're all going to have 500 dollar video cards and crap games to play..

I agree, si too early. Also, beta drivers are slower than production ones.
Lets wait until february to see real benchmarks in anandtech or tomshardware.

Perfect summation, Blue. I couldn't figure out whether to be suprised or disappointed by those scores. This is just way too early to be running benchmarks. MaximumPC didn't even list the type of PC used, only saying "Tests were run in the Alienware prototype system."

And where's the picture of the GeForce FX? Are they saving that for the magazine too?
