Rain is always important to prepare for, especially if you work outside. If you don’t have proper rain gear, you might as well pack up shop for the day. However, with winter temperatures,Monclerjassen rain gear needs to be even more robust and able to keep employees dry and warm. Jackets and rain gear made from materials such as neoprene, polyurethane, and PVC can help keep employees dry. For cold and wet conditions, rain gear should be supplemented with warming jackets, overalls, and hats.moncler-jassen Extreme Gard has a full line of robust winter gear that can keep employees warm in some of the most extreme conditions known to man. Their parkas, trousers, bibs, and coveralls can provide safety from the elements through the hard hours when other apparel fails.

love all you people being excited about the 6000-series, but have you noticed the dual 6-pin power connectors... on the 6770 prototype... which is supposed to be a low-power budget version (5770 has only one)

i think a lot of you will be screaming about power/heat when the 6870 requires dual 8-pins... just lol

As long as it runs cooler and uses less power than a comparable Fermi card they're still ahead of the game. And considering Fermi's specs, that shouldn't be too hard to accomplish.

It's a prototype, not a final revision.  The final version could run on one four pin connector when it's all said and done.  Alternatively  they may knee cap the heck out of the final version of the 6770 to make the power numbers they want to see.  We really don't know.  I'll also point out that this is an unconfirmed 6770.  We'll just have to reserve all judgment until the final product is released.

I don't care how fast or fancy the card is, if it LOOKS like crap (I hate the pictured design), I won't buy it. People can see inside my case. I don't want them asking what the hairdryer coils are doing inside my PC.

Two words for you then ... " Liquid - Cooling "

Looks way fancier.

So you're a fan of design over function then?

Retails cards won't look like that. Every vendor will use their own design and heatsink. Go to newegg and compare the same cards from different vendors -- they all look completely different.

If the quality of their last offerings is any indication, I'll be picking up something in the 6 series when it comes out.  I gave Fermi a miss after being unimpressed by the cost/performance in conjunction with the power, heat & noise problems.  

I'm amazed Nvidia's letting them stay one step ahead of them.

LOL, *letting* them?? Oh, that's rich. Nvidia couldn't catch up with AMD if it a year head start.

There will be price cuts on older series cards, who bought new ati 5 series cards shame on you!

I like the fan/heatsink. It looks very nice.

oh and btw: I CANT WAIT  FOR THE 6*** Series to be out

Sorry man, that's the wee little heatsink that ATI uses for most of their prototypes. If you look closely at the PCB you can actually see the outline of the traditional Heatsink shroud that will cover a large portion of this card.

But I totally agree with you...I can't wait for the 6*** series either! I've been hoarding my money since spring and it's been killing me not to spend it! I'm still rocking my old crappy 8800GTX and was starting to get visions of 470's dancing in my head...lol.
