Someone on here posted the link, and you can't deny the mark05 scores.

Pipes dont mean everything.

Ive seen this in a few threads already but its a complete waste of money IMO. There isnt anything that could utilize that much power. I dont like the paint on it either.

BTW Did anyone read the last comment on that link? lol :beard:

Pipes do mean quite a lot for a Video card I heard. So what makes a video card strong then? Not the clock speed, not the memory speed and now not the # of Pipes???

well, the way the things work isn't just by quantity of pipes. Sometimes, a cycle can do more than one thing at time.

Not to mention it uses a pentium 4. I got 10 bucks saying that an Fx55 can CPU beat it.
