    Are there any known issues with mixing these in a rig? I mean having an Nforce mobo chipset and an ATI based GPU.

    Really interested in your rig as Im thinking of going SFF. Do you have the standard PSU? any issues with power/noise/overheating?

    The single xt1900xt-x is more noisely then two 7800gtx together

    Yes it's running the standard 350watt power supply with no problems..

    I had heat problems with my two 7800gtx in sli...With a single ati xt1900xt-x or a single 7800gtx fitted there are no heat problems..

    Noise levels are very low to say it has about 7 fans running.
