I'm coming from a long, long road labeled "nVidia", because since 2001 (where I bought my first real "self-made" machine) I stuck with nVidia and was always happy about their products.. - Even during the Radeon 9700-time..
But when Vista, together with Crysis came in, I got really mad.. The average fps-rate (compared to XP with _exactly_ the same hardware) was about 33% lower - how could that be? Especially because ATI-based cards only dropped about 7% in the first place and after some optimizations from ATI's staff even less (around 1-3% AFAIR)..
So, I'm fed up with nVidia, its _very_ crappy performance and pricing policy which fell beyond the pale - ATI won me over and I'd like to buy a card from them (especially because I'm kinda "AMD stalker"
Since I'm interested in buying an ATI-card, Sapphire seems to be a good supplier - particularly because of the fact that I want an overclocked card with a _silent_ cooling-solution (no water-cooled stuff, though)..
But so far, I couldn't read any news from Fudo / Fudzilla-staff in general, talking about a "Sapphire 4870 (X2) Toxic/Atomic Edition"-card.. Sapphire does such cards, don't they?
Any information would be great - I'm really "hungry" for such a card.. Mid August will be the time when I get my first payslip and the remaining money will be spent on a 4870 (X2)-Chimei CMV-222H-combo..
