This does not even come up on the radar as far as Grave Injustices go, but I noticed something peculiar.

I do not spend much time at MSN, but I went there the other day because I saw an ad about their Shopping Search tool. I wanted to see what were the available deals on graphics cards, so I went through the menu and...

where is Nvidia?

Every single graphics card, with the exception of one Matrox, was an ATI. Not one Nvidia.

Now, Nvidia may or may not be the best, and is very often the most expensive, but not one?! That seems suspicious...

Does anyone know anything which might shed some light on this?

Here's another site that reviews some cards.

Hi,
Have you tried nvidia.com.
Might be worth a go.

Hi again,
I have just found another link that you should find very interesting as regards all graphics cards and prices.
Its at (computeractive.co.uk) and goes pretty deep into the subject. Well worth a look.

oh, right, Nvidia.com

how stupid of me...

um, yes, I am quite familiar with Nvidia.com

I'll try this again.

The MSN site listed ONLY ATI cards. To paraphrase myself, is that not SUSPICIOUS? Nvidia is the most popular card out there, as far as I know. So why would MSN leave them out?

This is known as a rhetorical question. If I want an Nvidia card, don't worry, I will find one.

Thank you Electronic Punk for taking the time to read my entire post and thereby grasp my meaning...I almost never use smilies, but :D

and thanks to everyone else for trying to be helpful :rolleyes:

I have a nasty habit f skim reading as my time is always limited ;)

I think MS are trying to form a bond with aTI as I also read that one of the aTI cards is the only one with support for DirectX9 features...

hey, ok, i was never directing that bit at you, you were the only one that seemed to get it. I was just razzing the folk who thought I just wanted to know where Nvidia.com was!

I just can't believe that, about the DX9/MS/ATI thing.

You a Simpsons fan?

Milhouse: "The Rand Corporation, with the reverse vampires, are taking the brains out of zombies and putting them into other zombies to make a race of Super Zombies! We're through the looking glass here people!"


Hey! Punk, aren't you in the UK?! Christ it's 5 AM your time! Go to bed! or...whatever you do at 5 AM!

Meanwhile, me go to bed...

I live on a planet where my days are over 24 hours.

Lonman is scaring me, how did you know I used to live in Alabama? :D

Yeah, I like the Simpsons... two quotes spring to mind, one with Auto is driving the bus like a madman and Millhouse says "Whoah this is like Speed2, but with a bus instead of a boat".

And also Mr. Burns walking up to a vending machine and asking "I'll have some toffees, but keep it open- I want to eat them now! ... ... You've made a powerful enemy today my friend."

If I remember my history lessons correctly ( Probably not !) but weren't the Temolar Knights in Malta. I mean that's a long to travel to be involved in this Conspiracy ( DOH, I just called it a conspiracy, that'll condemn me to hell ) Also do the horses like boats or trains ?

history lessons!?

what kind of cool school did you go to?

"Today children, we will be learning about Shakespeare, who incidentally was actually Francis Bacon. Francis Bacon himself, we are quite sure was none other than the Compte de St Germaine, an incredibly long-lived individual thought to have at one time used the name Jesus Christ, who as we all know did not die on the cross, but fled with the Magdalene (who was pregnant with Christs child, the real source of the Grail myth) to France. I hope you all did your reading, because this is going to be one HELL of an exam."

The horses preferred boats, naturally, and it is the Templar Knights who gave us the song "Row Row Row Your Boat".
