Default What do you think about this Video Card Manufacturer?.

I swear I made a thread on this.. but I cant find it

Weird.. Anyways

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814119151

Looking at this card. Looks like a great deal for the type of card. And all the features, GDDR3, open GL 2.0, 8 pipelines ect. Only problem, it is a weird ass brand. Never heard of it before. So does anyone here have any insight for me on this brand?

Looks... REALLY cheap... Never heard of the company. However i'm not too familiar with ATi cards and thier 3rd party video card manufacturers... guess i'm more of an nVidia guy. *shrugs*

ELSA is a cheap brand. You could give it a try, but spending a little extra on a brand that is reputable is worth it.

Almost all of the X700 Pros have the same "L" shaped heatsink/fan.

Well cheap meaning like.. Its just not good of a card. Or meaning, it wont last long, fan/heatsink is gonna go out, its easy to overheat ect?
