Hammerhead HMR989 comes with a GeForce GTX 460
For those that already have a water cooling system, this EVGA’s product might be interesting. This GeForce GTX 280 is overclocked (core is overclocked by 89MHz (602MHz to 691MHz), memory by 108MHz (reference 1107MHz to 1215MHz) and the shaders are up from 1296MHz to 1458MHz) and comes with a large water-cooling block, the complete card keeping a nice single slot design.
From Guru3D, this is top-notch product. The most important thing is the temperatures are very nice. But even if the GeForce GTX 280 remains the fastest single GPU based product on this planet, ATI products just offer more value for the money. But if you need features such as CUDA or PhysX, so this card is the right choice. But the US$600.- price of this simple bundle is not really cool…
