    Question Built by ATI and Powered by ATI, ANY difference?

    will there be a significance difference?

    for me, i think nvidia stock gfx sucks n elsa, leadtek, etc may be better

    but for ATI, i come to think that the original brand is the best

    i got a Grandmars anyway so i wanna know the con before i dump it away

    hey !nfineon ...

    you should post this thread in other HK forum cause in HK I see tons of ATI third party card... like Grandmars, FIC, Gigabyte, Magic-Pro, Xelo and others.... in North America... most ppl are stick with Original ATI stock card, Sapphire, Crucial in Canada, Sapphire, Gigabyte, Crucial and Hercules in the U.S. ...
    for myself... i think Third-party ATI card are better in Overclocking and in Cooling as well... (those who have self-design Heatsink and ramsink)

    ditto on that.
    have you seen the Sapphire Atlantis card?
    you won't find that kind of massive cooling on any "Built by ATI" cards.
