    Has anyone seen the INCREDIBLE heatsink and fan on the 9800XT for PC? How do we get one of these on our 9800? I wonder if ATI will sell this as a separate part?

    Check this link and see it for yourself. It's the proverbial bomb!: http://www.tech-report.com/reviews/2003q3/radeon-9800xt/index.x?pg=1

    As a side note, I should get my 9800 today and my last bit of ram to complete 2GB. I'm very exited and ready for Halo, Rainbow Six, and Tomb Raider!

    Yeah, but at least it's copper which is better than the aluminum cast sink on the other cards.

    Yes and hopefully ATi will align its price with their PC version. One can only hope.
