    Again, if you look at MSI's material, they refer to it as a GPU core. And as this is an MSI poll, I'd say the 'horse' in this instance would be MSI.

    Guys, wait until they announce the winner, find out what answer he put down, and then the question of "what is a Fermi?" will finally be answered.

    I received another e-mail a few minutes ago, and this is good news for the ones that didn't join the contest earlier.
    You can enter the contest until the 31st of May ( I'd say do it before the 31st :p ), so feel free to join now

    So the real answers are :

    Bill is the greatest
    Bills blows them all away
    Bill is darn hot looking
    Bill didn't let me win
    Bill doesn't do this often enough

    Did I win a card now ? or even two
    Question : Why do some overclockers switch into d*ckmode when money is involved

    Remark : They call me Pro Asus Saaya yupp, I agree

    Was there a data loss or something or did I really forget to update the posts ?

    Anyway, MSI decided to give away 3 GTX 480's instead of 1, so every winner gets a GTX 480!
