    I think this stands out as one of the worst press-releases of all time. Sparkle really needs to hire someone who can write these without embarrassing the whole company.

    Or, in short: ENGLISH, !@#$%^&&^*() DO YOU SPEAK IT?

    Its not natural at all - some people may have B.R players and PS3's that play B.R discs...

    Now having a HD cerfified 37-52" flatscreen at home FOR the HD movies would be more 'naturally essential'

    Ok, I'm getting tired with these GTX460SE BS. Of course not everybody is fluent in computer hardware lingo to understand that the SE version of a graphics card = S!hitty Edition, but it's embarrassing to see manufacturers try to cover up the fact that this IS the GTX 460 Sh!t Edition. First I saw was the Palit "Smart Edition" and now this...I'm c'mon, what's next?
    Mostly the cooler...but all in all it's another SE card...
    Damn it, now you got me thinking about that too! :mad: :banghead: :p

    Say what you will but Sparkle makes great stuff. The Calibre series is unreal. I realize this card isn't in that series but still they make great stuff and now have a Lifetime warranty.

    Man kinda lame making fun of that. I could careless if it is in Mar-shin if the product is decent and really as a budget card why is this card bad it is better than a 450?Example heck most low end cards don't have voltage regular heat sinks and this one does.

    How is it lame to comment on a marketing FAIL ? If you have no idea what a product is why would you buy it? Obviously a 460 in general preforms better than a 450, but that argument is "lame" without hard numbers (that apply to the card in question), because the number is bigger doesn't make it better (see ATI).

    :wtf::confused:

    No one is making fun of it, simply commenting, on why is it named the "Sabrina Edition", and what makes it different enough to deserve said name, and that the marketing blurb said something, but what it was no one knows as it made no sense.

    I think your looking for an argument where there isn't one to be made, as it's easier to attack other people rather than their argument, but hey that's you (you see what I did there?).:shadedshu

    I can just picture a guy at a lan party showing off his rig he built then someone recognizing the Sabrina Edition card...after that the story ends with a lot of laughing and bits of crappy GPU embedded into some ex-friend's face :D.

    yeah, its not usual when you hear it especially on pc stuff, they usually use aggresive name
    they should make a poll bout the name,
    (and it makes me remember someone that far far away, i hope God take care of her)

    Personally, I like Sparkle, they might not have the best English around and things like that, but their purple colour scheme looks very nice imo.
