Agreed, I would buy it either way as long as the cars itself is what I want. I always wished girls would fawn over hot computers. That's why at 17 I put down the keyboard and bought myself a used Porche 944s. Then I was into two expensive hobbies :/

No, they really don't. The problem with it is you're calling it by a moniker that already exists. The 8970 is real, albeit a rebranded 7979, but it is an OEM only GPU.

That's like Toyota (sorry, I drive a Supra. If its not my computer its my car) coming out with a new Corrolla, naming it the T290x and me saying that I'm just gonna call it the Levin because that was a Japanese only rebranded Corolla and people will know what I'm talking about. No I think they would get confused on my car forums.

I want to let you know that I'm not yelling at you, I know it can be hard to tell. I'm just saying.
