Regardless of the truth, a "theft" can be faked easily with very little chance of repercussions. With this in hand a marketing wizard will turn this into a demand and differentiation motive to instill in his market. Overall it's masterful and speaks to XFX' firm grip on their target demographics.

Just found one on ebay 16 bids so far price now 775.00 seller states you wouldn't know what he went through to get this card. I don't know if it's even an offical release yet. They are only making 1000 of them and your chances of ever getting your hands on one and even if you do it's going to cost you well over $1.000. Oh and he doesn't have the packaging or manuls or drivers but it does come with an awesome gun case????? Also his first listing.Fabe

OK first off let me say yes I'm a horse's ass. I just confirmed that it is a marketing ploy refereed to as a viral ploy. OK so the hook, line, sinker including the rod, real, fisherman and his boat are now lodged in my throat. Please accept my sincerest apologies and try and keep the bashing to aha say a minimum. I hear 5,600 do I hear 5,650? Thanks. Fabe
