Default Trustworthy or not? Video card manufacturer...

Do you guys know anything about Prolink as a video card manufacturer? I ask because of this really sweet deal. I already know that eVGA, BFG, etc. are good, I'm just curious about this one. Thanks for the help.

Yeah man, it's a sweet deal. I just don't want to get stuck with a card that is DOA. I guess if the heatsink breaks or something, I could always get an aftermarket one. Man it's tough to say no to that deal

i mean it probably won't overclock as good, but for a price like that, i'd definitely get it

Yeah their website is pretty odd. On their 'Awards' page, there are mentions from reputable websites such as Tom's Hardware. I think I might end up doing this deal, unless someone has a major objection.

Wow...what a deal. If I had the money, I'd jump on that.....I'd say go for it...although I've never heard of that manufacturer. Nothing looks odd about it whatsoever.

Core clock is only 350mhz? Why so low? Maybe thats why its cheap.

350 is normal for un-oced,
most cards will easily knock up to around 405mhz core, and 1.2ghz mem. add an arctic cooler thingy and your set
