I was looking for a leadtek card but it was completely sold out.

I got a 6800 GT from a company called "magic pro".

It had a reference design and only al 1 year warranty as opposed to 3 one on the Leadtek :|

after looking at its website, here

http://www.magic-pro.com/product/nvidia/GF6800GT.htm

which offers no info whatsoever i am beginnning to get worried (heck, i've never even heard of this company before).

Do you think that there will be a performance/quality difference between this and cards by other companies (haven't tested it yet, i am a relative n00b and have no idea how to benchmark)?

Thanks for the help

Magic Pro are a Hong Kong based AiB partner of NVIDIA. They are popular in Hong Kong. I do no know if they have an International wing named differently


Oh yeah, they are average. No extras or custom HSF IIRC offered by them. Basicall a reference card.

ala Winfast = Leadtek
Epox=2theMax
Inno3d=Innovision
I think also Grand Mars=Chaintech

etc

purdy much! :D

I dunno how Magic Pro's warranty policy is in Australia. Send them an email mate to ask about their policy?
