Still looking for the right card and I think I may have found it in the Club 3D HD3870 Passive version. There are just a couple of problems though:
1. I cannot find any reviews so do not know how effective the heatsinks are. Would also like to know how hot the heatsink gets.
2. I cannot find any pictures of the backside of the card. I would like to see them for the sake of it, but also because I want to make sure it will fit on my motherboard (Intel DP35DP) and not get in the way of the RAM, NB heatsink, or CPU cooler.
So if anyone has this card and could help I would be eternally grateful!
All the best
PS - also, I am not to sure about how drivers work for GCs. Club 3D have no drivers for the card on their website, so I guess I would have to use the Radeon driver from ATI here:

Is that standard practise for GCs - to use the drivers from the chip manufacturer (ATI/Nvidia)? Or do some manufacturers of cards have their own drivers, and if so what's the difference?
