Why the tech support post? Don't you think it is ridiculous to have to pay for tech support? I think the comparison was indeed the best way to illustrate how ridiculous I thought ATI's approach is and how awesome BFG's is.
Yeah.. fair enough. But how is it news? It's not, really--that's the kind of thing that should be included in a review of a BFG or ATI card. And I think this is where the problem lies--it seems to have nothing to do with anything, and as a result, it pissed people off.
And OK, for a $80 card, the MX is the fastest thing out there (at least in Q3A).
