    You probably put it in a while ago, but I really like the hover over boxes. Nice explanations on all the info shown.

    It is cool, but does not recognize 3dfx cards. Too bad, I cannot verify my overclocking results with it.

    I hope that winning the giveaway means you will receive a new GPU as a prize, and not that Powercolor are giving away their returns! lol ;)

    Neither did I, unless the new (Intel) Sandy Bridge mobos have this. Hope it does as I'm getting new PC once its released but still using my current 5970. I read that PCIe 3.0 should help improve performance of PCIe 2.1/2.0 as it features extra overhead.

    Indepth PCIe 3.0 FAQ here which I found informative.
