The drive will pause in reading for a minute for no reason whatsoever to seek its cache, which is dumb and a flaw in the design!

As in... if they update the BIOS, then you will have to search and search for your VGA BIOS to flash over when you get the new card MoneyMan, and if you get the same BIOS, you better hope they didn't change the pixel engine instructions or ANYTHING, otherwise SLi won't work.

Yeah, I suppose, but if they change the pixel or texture engines, you are SCREWED.
