KFA2 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 Anarchy attracts attention despite reference clock rates. Firstly, thanks to the very efficient and noiseless cooler. As for the GTX 580 itself, it's currently the fastest single-GPU solution. However, you may also want to consider Radeon HD 6970, because it may have a better price/performance ratio (as of the late July 2011) despite being slower.
We express gratitude to KFA2 for the provided graphics card. The PSU is provided by TAGAN, the monitor is provided by NVIDIA.
