You should kiss everybody behind who bought the ATI card, if it was not for them your GTX 260 would sell for much more money.
Some off the NVIDIA fanboys still have a hard time too see how good the present ATI offering is.
Lucky for them it didn't take NVIDIA long time to figure it out.

Seriously, you're a good guy usually, but since the new ATI cards came out, you've been acting like an ass, overreacting to anything said against (or even simply not in favor of) ATI.

The 4xxx series is good, really good, we all know it (ok, almost all of us know ) (and, by the way, this is testified by long term nvidia users having switched to the red camp), but please, give it a rest.

Mind you, I'm not attacking you in any way or form, I'm pointing out that you should cheer up a little. Seriously, your liver would be gratefull

Personally, I'd go with eVGA, with BFG being a close second. I wouldn't touch any other manufacturer due to dodgy customer service. Ask around here, and you'll hear some absolute horror stories, particularly with XFX. A few members here were jerked around by them. They like to tout their "double lifetime warranty" but heaven forbid you actually need to utilize it.

I just can believe it, you're using evon qoute from a tread which was started by Slappi, obvious ATI basher and troll poster. The tread was closed immediately by CaptNKILL. Good timing before it developed in one huge flame war.
LINK

Obviously there was nothing funny in that tread. If you have a hard time to get it, would you find anything funny about it if some obvious troller posted the same about the NVIDIA cards?
So you can see evox was not right and replys like that are only good flame starter and your post is not any better.
Why didn't you let DarkOneX reply and if he was trying to be funny about ATI why not use a little smiley specialy with GTX 260 in his signature in a tread where the ATI and NVIDIA is being compared.

I sure do not apreciate your lecturing and I'am not going to get in the argument with you about who is acting like and ass also you better check my postings before you start attacking me.
Anyway this is my last reply on the subject and even that is little more than you deserve.

It looks like it's you who all off sudden become Mr serious when the joke was turn on you.

Anyway even though English is not my native language, "tread" was a misprint.
The problem is the damn forum dictionary can't read my mind.
