Is that really the reason or is it because you stumbled across something on the world wide web that as an Ati 9700 user you'd thought you'd have " a dig " ?

Screensavers were popular until powersave came into being a few years back which not only saves your screen but actually lowers the power consumption and saves the planet ;)

You all might want to keep a Class C fire extinguisher next to the case if you gotta run somewhere fast.

Class C Extinguishers are suitable for use on electrically energized fires. This class of fire extinguishers does not have a numerical rating. The presence of the letter C indicates that the extinguishing agent is non-conductive.

I wonder if UL will get involved in this anytime soon?

UL - Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.

UL Standards including Electrical and Non-Electrical Standards and Draft Standards, and UL Directories of Certified Products: Automotive Burglary Protection Mechanical Equipment Directory; Building Materials Directory; Electrical Appliance and Utilization Equipment Directory; Electrical Construction Materials Directory; etc.

You all be careful now. :(

might need a fire extinguisher because your on the first graphics card clocked over 1ghz ever. the thing could possibly melt into a glowing ball of molten lag and children should be told to never handle it while loaded.

also its coupled with the meanest GPU active cooling ever built by a gfx company and included with the card and can be known to scare away the elderly with its whine and fire off car alarms in the middle of the night while you blister away at GunMetal.

sweet.

i wish they made sex toys.

Considering your 3dmark2001 score is so bad with a 9700 I suggest you go and sort the rest of your rig out whilst DX7 games are what everyone plays.

Unless you play DX8/DX9 3dmark03 all the time of course, in whidh case you will get 4000+ and be able to proudly aclaim it in your sig ;)

You have no control over your emotions either now do you? ;)

That's a poor repost my friend.

You're not pissing me off, how can I be when I am eating you for breakfast ?

No, I guess that wasn't the main reason I wasn't getting the FX, but that's a good one nonetheless. The main reason I went with ATI is because their AIW products are badass, and an AIW 9700 is superior to a GeForceFX in that it's quieter, is the best choice for home theater (which is what I'll use it for down the road), and I don't see any FX cards that have as many features as an AIW has. This was off topic, but hey, you asked.

Can't argue with that .. AIW is excellent

I sometimes wonder if the pig that is nvidia can't **** the goat that is Ati.

But nobody would want to buy a $699 piat of course.

And things would stagnate.
