sounds interesting but I have not experience with PoweColor cards. I've heard bad things about them.

My first and only Powercolor card was a HD 6850 which artifacted whenever the GPU usage would go over 10%.
I left a review on it on Newegg and Hugo naturally replies "There hasn't been many problems with this product".
Thanks Hugo, this makes me feel better I guess.
