Default The dark side...well, red side

Yep, this is the first AMD/ATI card I have bought since the Rage II. I have gotten my money's worth, on this EVGA 260 GTX. Had it for 4 years!

Last night I purchased the Sapphire 7850, should be here before the weekend.

Oh yeah, Newegg got new shipments in.

The last time I owned an ATI card, this was the specs: LOL
60 MHz core
up to 83 MHz SGRAM memory
480 MB/s memory bandwidth
DirectX 5.0

I am excited, as this card is as fast as a GTX 580 (when OC'ed), coming from a 260 GTX, should be a tremendous jump.
They're after me Lucky Charms!
