    [quote=”Tech Report”<]III. LanOC Reviews on Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 FleX[/quote<] I think its both hilarious and appropriate that the top and bottom of that review are plastered with adverts for the HD5770.

      Maybe that’s there for the people who say “Hmm, this 6770 is nice, but it’s just a 5770 with a small clock bump, maybe I should get a 5770, I wonder how much they’re discounted, now? Oh, look an ad for one. Let me just click on this…”

      Plus, they’ve either got to sell out those 5770s or reflash their BIOSes with the new clock speed/PCI ID. 🙂

    What the….? Are you guys following me around? Reading my brainwaves via satellite? On Sunday, I saw a VCR player on sale at a discount store and almost bought it, just to keep my extensive collection of VHS [s<]pron[/s<] classic movies enjoyable for another few years. Dude, don't make me start wearing the tinfoil helmet again!!

      dpaus, are you related to T’pau by any chance? 😉

        Oh, you [i<]would[/i<] know her, wouldn't you?! Naw, she won't talk to me ever since I flunked out of that new-age 'back-to-basics' Kohlinar school she was running out in the desert. It's OK; I didn't need her cheap plastic jewellry to get in touch with myself, just my VHS collection of... Never mind.

      Seka is a good reason to keep the VCR around.
