    LOL@Ebay

    This bloke is obviously using liquid Nitrogen in his benchmarks...look at the outrageous claim in this item......try and guess what processor this board has got fitted before you get to the end when it tells you.

    yeah but his benches are disk drive benchmarks!! and 1 "graphics" benchmark.... so the crappy on-board graphics on that mobo almost matches the crappy on-board graphics of a "2200" LOL

    Whats the UK's Advertising truth group?

    That latter link angers me, really. The winner, I'm fairly certain, is some newbie who doesn't know the difference between an 8800 and a 9800, but who believes he's getting a top of the line card here (Take a look at the zero feedback rating he has). People who exploit newbies make me sick.

    I know what you mean, but hows it his fault if somone bids on it ?
    He's clearly labeled it as a 8800. Its the person biding on its responsibility to check things out.

    True enough. Still, I got the impression he was marketing it as something its not. Upon re-reading the page, I can't find anything other than facts (A lot, wouldn't you say? ), but the feeling still lingers. Maybe I'm just biased. :/

    ... is a 8800 any more powerful than a 8500, isnt it just for CAD type stuff (just out of interest) ?

    It's a Fire GL so the 3D performance for games will be quite poor.

    A true Radeon 8500 will whoop its ass.
