Martin, that card makes total sense if you have a motherboard that has the slots arranged that you can afford to loose those slots hiding under the heatsink and fans.

What kind of computer or motherboard are you using with the Zoltac video card?

The ASUS P9X79 motherboard allows you to use slots 1 & 5 for the GPU (16 lane slots). Blackmagic states that the GTX 580 should go in slot 5 and the GUI card should go in slot 1. Unfortunately the Zoltac, if put in slot 5 would probably slam into the case. Not sure if you can swap the positions of the video cards in the slots and have things still work. Probably can but I am not going to spend 4 grand in computer parts to find out.

Does BlackMagic Design read these forums and jump in?
