    Still making obscenities. :cool:

    And on that front, Powercolor deserve a mention. They consistently try to make things with more 'oomph'. So, despite the fact they don't always make the 'coolest' stuff and I have no experience of their customer service - they always try hard. My Powercolor HD7970 LCS was way faster than a GHz edition 7970 long before GHz editions were even born. :toast:
