Surely I'm not the only one who thought of the cartoon when they saw "Big O".

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Concerning Zotac (one of your spotlighted manufacturers): Who the heck are they? It seems to me that they literally burst onto the scene about a year ago, but their Wikipedia page is quite sparse. I know they are a Chinese company, but other than that, what's up with Zotac? Perhaps it's good that we don't know them from high-profile employee suicide deaths like we know Foxconn, but maybe HotHardware needs to go undercover and expose these guys! Might Zotac be interested in throwing us a bountiful sweepstakes?Confused

"We're a Virus!"

Heh-Heh!

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Super Dave:

They've been around for years. Made a bigger splash in Europe than here, until about a year ago. My Son-In-Law is British and was upset because he couldn't get that brand here in the USA. I showed him EVGA and he's never looked back.

Good thing he didn't go with BFG! My two graphics card manufacturer picks are XFX and EVGA. The XFX double-lifetime guaranty is hard to beat!

EVGA used to have a lifetime warranty, but I think that they changed that. it's a shame. I have an XFX Radeon HD-5850 Black and It's a good card.
