Actually they took chaintech cards and oc'ed them.

Yes the leadtek is here and I'm running it, you wouldnt believe the difference!
I wanted to run it a few days before I commented, actually I wanted to run it a week, thats about the time it takes to see how good or bad it will be.
for me anyway.

I cant even compare the bfg to the leadtek, being that the leadtek blows it away speedwise, with more software and price, the bfg was a few dollars more.

So far I'm feeling VERY cheated by bfg, In my opinion, this xt oc is a rip off, you can get an origional chaintech $40 cheaper ! and the chaintech has better cooling too.

running the leadtech @ 300/475/950 and it rocks!

LOL @ speaking nicly to the bfg, I cursed the wretched pile of crap even a day before the leadtek was here.
Glad to see you and your "freak" BFG5900XT are getting along so well ?? At least you can stop cursing it now that you are using the much better Leadtek card !!

As I've said before, your new choice of a Leadtek 5900 card was excellent !! Just as it would have been if you had chosen a Gainward ! Both these manufacturers cards are amongst the best ! Its just a pity you had to suffer a BFG to find out !
The more I know, the more I know I don't know
