    Spot on - what a joke. So the next time I look for a floppy drive, should I ask if it's crossfire certified? :roll:

    This is got to be the biggest joke of the year. And besides who used PC5400 most people are using PC6400. If your going to do the "marketing thing" at least be up on what people are buying.

    I wonder if this is just ATI's attempt to make fun of the fact that NVidia started this whole certification thing. I would start certifying everything if I was ATI just to screw with people. Crossfire certified cases, hard drives, floppy drives, DVD-burners, surge protectors, case fans, LED case feet, EVERYTHING MUST BE CERTIFIED!

    \I do like the heatspreader though
    \\I really wish OCZ would just release RAM with solid color heatspreaders like this without the gay logos
