    And they basically dominate the Asian market, particularly China. Since they are relatively unknown in the US, most of yous are afraid to try them. But I'm telling ya,their cards are beastly. AND they don't follow taditional nvidia reference designes so they make their own goodies.

    I've heard of them, and they're nice cards, but I don't understand their infatuation with frogs. I can't think of one culture in which the frog is a symbol of power, except maybe French cuisine.

    OMG (never said that before) PALIT/xpervison/gainward are all the same company there is a Palit guy on the forums nad i can vouch for Palit cards.

    Palit are cheap possibly the cheapest producer of graphics cards but are also one of the best makers, by that they use high quality materiels and have allways got top notch cooling and top notch overclockers.

    They are a reputable maker of cards been going for lots of years. ill try to get the palit guy to come in here! To this Thread! HE WORKS FOR PALIT BTW.

    Im from uk so i dunno about USA but he specialises in US market i think?

    Yup, I cover the US market.

    Since you asked who Palit is I'll tell you. But keep in mind I want to keep the marketing BS to a minimum. The about us page will give you the background from a corporate standpoint, http://www.palit.biz/main/about.php?id=20

    I think that's prolly the best place to start and then you can ask questions about specific stuff.

    The thing that makes us different is really several things. #1 is that we use our own design boards wherever possible. We try to improve the reference design as well as components including the obvious stuff like the heatsink. But we also do things like 3-phase power.

    The best part is, since we're so big, we almost always have the best price.

    But see? This is starting to sound like the same old marketing bullshit no one wants to hear and I don't want to be that guy.

    I'll leave it at this and if anyone has any specific questions I'm happy to answer them.

    There are already a couple really good threads in here so check out some of my other posts.

    It's a marketing thing; what can I say?

    In our first meeting I said we needed to kill the frog thing. Then I put some feelers out to the gaming community and got almost 100% agreement that they liked the frogs. So I kind of got outvoted.

    The people that don't like the frog are drastically outnumbered by the people that do. So the frog lives. For now. But I have my eye on him. lawls

    I like to use prolly myself, but then again I'm not a company representative.


    Whoa. Just got the ClubIT newsletter and they're featuring Palit cards.

    Palit sells well here in India, more so with the Radeon than GeForce. The X1950 Pro was a riot, esp with the cooler. Ever considered pushing the hot air straight out?

    Wait I'm not sure if that was the X1950 Pro which sold well here.

    The frogs are so much better than some of the weird crap that gets put on cards. I'm not a fan of the gargoyle monsters, or some of the odd ninja women. My personal favorite though is Evga, when they make sleek black covers with just the name. I really like the PALiT orange though. I like computers that are very minimalist, without fancy lights and designs everywhere making them look like a carnival light show. I feel I'm the minority in this though.
