Wow. I find that hard to beleive as FoxxConn is a very well made card from what I've read. I did some research before I purchased this card. It's a excellent performer, oc's like crazy. It performs on par, or above, most other 8800 GTS's from what I've seen.

Maybe I should see just how far I can push the shader clock.
