    yea i bought some, i used it on an x1950 recently and still have enough left over for another gfx card. it comes in a sheet about 10x10cm (maybe it's 2 sheets cant remember) but plenty there for at least one gfx card if not two.

    Nice one Creed, many thanks for your help. Funnily enough that's the card I need it for. :)
