What a beast, and $80 cheaper than NCIX's prices. Win-win!

Isnt that middle port for the mac? I have only seen one on a mac before... that.s why i'm asking.

On a side note... in relation to how monolithic that card is, why does it have a "Mini" display port? did they think the card was so big they had to counteract its huge size with something smaller? idk..anyways, back to oogling.

I didnt look at his review no.... Ive had no problems with the card so far at all.. Im positive its somthing with his computer other than the card.

On a side no i was exspectiing problems.. because it is a Es card but its been Great so far no problems with it at all.

Maybe the gpuz isn't lining up properly or reading that card wrong? The textures should read 256ish GB/s bandwidth? Just follow the HWC review link if you don't believe me. 5850 has the 128 gb/s
