    a Palit Rep probably wouldn't know those things, I like the Sonic it has a nice bundle except it's one of the few Vendor's that didn't include an HDMI cable which is a shame considering how well they did on the back plate ports, the cooler is mediocre and unnecessary. if I had a question it would be what Memory it's using I just can't seem to find any good photos :(.

    ^ I totally agree with that.

    I think cards should have longer than say, 1 year warranty...but anything over 5 is pushing it. A specific company (not saying who) with lifetime warranty doesnt even offer their warranty to EVERYONE. I bought the card with advertised "famous lifetime warranty" and when I tried to get an RMA number from them, they tell me it needs to be less than two years old because im not in the "region" of the lifetime warranty. ...Not buying from them ever again. The funny part is, I only got the card a year and a half ago but because I can't find the reciept they wont service it. Talk about bad customer service for a card with supposed "lifetime warranty".


    Anywho, back on topic, I've used and bought palit cards for many people before and they haven't failed as of yet. They have been in Australia for quite some time, always with great prices :).

    The top end stuff is teh exception. Both ATI and NV play those cards close to their chests. I'll refrain from commenting on that lest I get fired 8|

    Nope. And that's how they pass the same QC tests as the regular cards. We could do that but the warranty would have to go down significantly.

    I am trying to work with the factory to get the info required to do your own volt mod (obviously at your own risk). The OC guys over at TeamPalit are working on figuring it out on their own as well.

    I thought so. The first time you engage in a conversation with me you, subtly, insult me. I respond with humor instead of escalating things like a pair of CS players.

    So ya, I think that's reasonably mature.

    Just because I work for Palit doesn't mean I have to let people talk to me just any old kind of way. I don't give crap and I don't take crap- I'm not in the crap business (odd as that may sound because I'm in marketing).
     
    Nick89 and ChillyMyst say thanks.

    huh? do they give you a commission for being an asshole. I read a review of the Sonic, you don't like what I have to say about the product too bad. Qimonda memory sucks, would of been worth the MSRP if Palit used Samsung, thats an insult.

    Sure thing. There's usually more than one way to effect the volt mod but I figure no one would know better than the engineers that designed the board so I asked. Should know something soon.

    Don't forget- if you volt mod, it's on you.

    Palit saw that the stock cooler although at acceptable levels of noise and heat decided to be better and go for a nice quieter and more effiecinet cooler, this was because it was borderline high for the stock cooler althoug ha s i said acceptable. Its products have really fast clock speeds and the cards even oc way past normal levels. They have generally great warrenty and will accept most RMA. Even the fact that they have a knowledgeable rep going around the forums and answering questions makes me value them high.

    The fact you choose to mock a great company and a great card (8800gt) makes me ashamed because you clearly dont have a scooby doo what your on about hen.

    There ae plenty of reasons why to buy Palit
    1. Non Stock cooling - works better alround cooler faster and quieter
    2. Great Customer serivices - Need i say more
    3. 3 Phase power design
    4. Medium bundle - FREE GAME and connectors
    5. Better ability to OC higher than stock
    6. Cheap price but high quality
    7. Good build quality
    8. Cheap price :)
    9. GOOD WARRENTY
    10. Good memory used!
    11. Not bad looking

    They didnt include a hdmi cable well wah wah not every company needs to include a £20 cable that most users wont use, besides you want a better bundle you can go buy from another company or buy the rest yourself which is acceptable.

    I wish there was a Newegg in the UK becasue currently the only place to get cheap prices is ebay or a long hunt on all the online retailers.
