Hi Rodney!

1) Well, how do you ground yourself?
2) Is this even necessary?
3) What can happen with the product if this is not done?

If you can make a video about it, it would be very helpful to me and other people.

Congratulations on your work, I love your videos, I learn a lot from them HAHAHA =]

Errr.... what if I am seated on a chair without leg touching on the ground, is it fine? I will be touching the PSU of course.

You should really ground yourself to be sure, but if you are very careful not to touch any of the sensitive parts it's fine.

Please take a minute to register :) http://www.3dgameman.com/user/register

Nice video Rodney and cheery as usual =) I'm looking forward to the review of it, I recently got a EVGA GTX 470 and I'm loving in, it's also not as loud or hot as most reviewers say it is either.

At constant 70% fan speed(can only just hear it over case fans thankfully) it idles at 36c and at average load while gaming it reaches around 70c(and it's hot this summer).

Maybe ATI were paying reviewers 'under the table'(bribes) =P

"Maximum, Game".

And how do you ground yourself anyways?

Maybe nVidia will gain my favor once they come out with 2GB cards. Even for their mid-range (or high end) cards.

Mac OS X or Windows you ask? I SAY BOTH!

Its good to see Palit isnt using the standard cooler like nearly everyone else.

I hope you are going to do the GTX 480 as well.

PALiT did use the standard cooler on their early 400 series cards. In fact all of the partners had no choice in using the reference nVidia design and specifications.

I bought a reference GTX470 with PALiT stickers on it, it'll be interesting to see the review on this version and how PALiT's own design stands up against nVidia'a own.

Well, I've already reviewed their GT 240 Video Card some time ago: http://www.3dgameman.com/reviews/1110/palit-gt-240-sonic-1gb-gddr5-video-card

True, this is a GREAT card for those on a budget. It certainly stands on its own. I guess what I meant was:

"Here's for a KICKASS rating!"

I still own an 8600GT from Palit, which also needs no external connections and doesn't require much power. Surprisingly it still works good.

Right now I'm using 9800GTX's for gaming but I've been thinking of upgrading for a while. I hope the Fermi series is worth something as ATI has been dominating the GPU department for quite some time, and I personally haven't had a good experience with ATI cards.

By the way, we recently change our 1 year warranty policy to 2 years prior to purchase of June 1st 2010.

This will only for US/Canda Market only right now.

I've seen boxes from 2007 (including my iMac box) that have specs on them.
