    oh no your joking :-( why the hell not??

    I'm thinking of jumping ship to the dark side, yeah Nvidia. lol it cost more admittedly but it kills the 290x in every benchmark I have seen alongside the fact they are really quiet. gonna go for the windforce OC version of course.

    Saying that though I keep changing my bloody mind.

    Stop following nVidia-payed sites maybe?

    Either way it sucks that AMD cards are out of stock in most places and gimped in price at the moment, otherwise I'd be really scratching my head at anyone who thinks 4% more performance in 3 out of 5 games means having 1GB of framebuffer less and having to pay 20% more a great deal...


    Aaaanyway, where my MATRIXes, Lightnings, TOXIC/ATOMICs, SOCs and TurboXs at?
