Overclocking Surrealism
Wipe the slate clean and make something innovative. If people were tired with overclocked and rebranded nV cards I don't know why there isn't more outrage with this :laugh:

fact of NV changing the Name of the GF9800 to GF GTS250. I recall back in the Day NV had the vanilla, GTS, and Ultra, too many Nomenclatures now TBH.
