    Thanks for including full support for integrated graphics. Now I know exactly what I'm dealing with when I receive a notebook.

    Am I the only one that wouldnt want to win? PowerColor isnt the most reliable brand available ..

    Granted I could sell it on ebay .. but then the person who bought it from me would hate me and I couldnt live with myself.

    I have entered, i hope i win this time round. On to why I'm posting here i think the GPU-Z 0.6.1 is faulty it is displaying boost on my card and i do not have a 6xx series card.

    Woo! Maybe I won't have to purchase a new GPU since my 8800GT is pretty much dead now :(
    If I don't win, looks like more money to save! XD
    When does the comp close?

    Hmm, I'm running my PC with AMD gpu drivers + Intel HD drivers (Ivy Bridge GPU) due to the Lucid Virtu MVP software and I'm having issues running GPU-Z 0.6.2 though I do remember being able to run 0.6.1 before. Is this an issue with my PC or does GPU-Z not support both drivers installed? I rebooted my PC and the GPU virtualization is off at start up.

    Worldwide contests are FTW.

    Last time I won something was a Radeon 9700 Pro from Beyond3D. They sent me the package all the way from Britain.
