Lol - I doubt the 6800 is Copper!

Gold would be so terribly hard to get off the cards - but if you wanted to you would probably at a guess have to put the card in very strong acid to burn off what isn't gold. Even then it would be pretty crap gold. I don't know how old you are but maybe try your Chemestry Teacher or a Chemist.

That is what I said - use Acid - but what you get will not neccersarily be very pure because there are things which are used in Computers which are as if not more unreactive than Gold.

Thumbs down Final comment

If gold was used in components,you would probably have a choice of,
Basic or Gold version,probably 2 or 3 times the basic price.
Have you seen this advertised ?

Of course not,it's gold colored or yellow.

Lol - yeah - gold is only used though because it is needed. Thats why they don't sell a gold version and a copper version.

My 9.6m Broadband Extension is Gold Plated - otherwise I would have to have my computer down in the Hallway! I had to do it for 4 months - never again!
