    Is that a Displayport port?
    That would go great with a Dell 3008 WFP monitor. I've been thinking about getting two of them.

    They forgot to add "Sparkle, the leading video board manufacturer". Only then the deception would be complete.

    These marketing guys should be hung and then shot :)

    I have seen a lot of sparkles cards on newegg. They look great and the cooling is exeptional for most of their cards.

    Doesn't Sparkle make the Nvidia reference cards or something like that?

    I had a Sparkle GeForce 6600 GT at one time, can't say I was too happy about it. It used to freeze my box randomly for 3-4 second and that drove me nuts. I was glad to finally trade it in for a Leadtek 6600 GT, that worked flawlessly on the same configuration.

    Maybe it was a mobo-vid card compatibility problem... Not sure, had a Gigabyte mobo at the time, but still, I can't say that Sparkle is my first choice when it comes to video products.

    I'm sure others might have had better experiences with this brand, but mine wasn't that fortunate.
