    Nice. Do you have any numbers of about how many graphics cards they have to throw away because the BGA pins were bad?
     
  6. Slave Labor

    Well when I saw that the ATI cards were made in China, I first thought of the slave labor that goes on there. It is sad to see that our nice cards are part of globalization's slave lobor. I wonder how much the workers get from out $299.00 X800XL's??

    What happens if we have a war with China? no more ATI cards for the U.S.? :(

    the workers in the factory are making good money (compared to regular wages in china), the work is not physically hard.

    if the us go to war with china, i suggest you better stop worrying about video cards and start looking for the next nuke shelter
