heres a picture of what it looks like

under the little pic it says
"The Geforce FX runs so hot that it needs vent ducting (not shown) which could crowd your first PCI slot

now on to the story !

If theres one thing this industry is lousy at, its keeping secrets. The veil of mystery surrounding Nvidia's NV30, the would-be Radeon-killer, had more holes in it than the Shround of Turin. While rumors of the NV30's specifications have been surfacing since last March, it wasn't until November's Comdex that the Santa Clara-based company let us in on what we pretty much knew already:
NV30 is gonna be one ferociously powerful grathics card.
Christened the Geforce FX (an amalgam of "effects" and an homage to the 3dfx engineers working at Nvidia), the card's entirely new architecture is reminiscent of Nvidia's jump from the Geforce2 to the Geforce3. While it's easy to look at the Geforce FX as simply more muscle, Nvidia likes to think of the card as a highly programmable processor, with myriad features that game developers will eventually have a much easier time tapping.
Unfortunately, the Geforce FX still isn't available. Originally scheduled to ship in late 2002, Nvidia now expects the FX by February.The cause of the delay has been a source of considerable speculation, but it seems it's mostly due to Nvidia's desire to reduce heat. The Geforce FX chip also needed 125 million transistors (double the number of Geforce4) to achieve board, we can't say how it will benchmark next to the Radeon 9700. Nvidia is claiming that the Geforce FX will have a 30% to 50% overall performance advantage over the Radeon 9700, and a 40% advantage over the Radeon 9700 in Doom III.However, it's important to point out that Doom III is essentially a DX 8 title. Like the R9700, the Geforce FX will require a power connector to operate. Unlike the R9700, though, failing to connect the power cable wont disable the part; it will simply force it to run at a slower clock speed.
Knowing that gamers demand the very best components, we wont be surprized if people shell out $400 for the top-of-the-line graphics card. Nevertheless, the FX's February ETA puts it that much closer to the release of ATI's next salvo (the rumored Radeon 10,000). Add to that a dearth of titles that will even take advantage of the technology, and we agian find ourselves in a place where the hardware may be years ahead of the software.

Heres the graths at the bottum

P.S - I think the new video card will overheat too much , will be too big , will cost $400+
