Not at all sure how they hold up -- Best Buy carries that brand if that helps any.

Mine's waiting at the purolator place still for me to pick it up - rats if I didn't have to work so much I'd have it -- of course if I worked less I wouldn't have it at all.
Thanks. Got myself one.

PNY is most well known for making high-end nVidia Quadro FX workstation graphic cards so the quality should be very good. Can't say much more than that as I have never personally owned one.

Thanks, that's re-assuring, since I bought mine 10 minutes ago without knowing about the company.

I ordered mine on Monday for $259.99. Now the same site has the card listed as $299.99!
My order is a backorder and I'm pretty sure I'll still get my original price but it hasn't stopped me from worrying. :/ Most sites I see now have also increased their price.
