I don't remember all the Vendors, just that both of my 8800 GTS were from BFG.
My current 5870 as well as the x850 are from Sapphire and the 9700 was a Hercules 3D Prophet.
I think the Geforce 4 was from Gainward, but I'm absolutley not sure.
But you're right, it's a shame they dropped support for < 5000 Series so early. Still I prefer to have a non supported Hardware, than a broken one.+Roland Taylor
You missed the point again. "It's just a Clevo" is not a criticism and it wasn't meant as such - in fact, Clevo notebooks are pretty nice (I own one, so I know for sure). The "real, useful" criticism is, that they lack options. Furthermore you can get pretty much the same notebook with more options - that's why I pointed out, that this notebook is a Clevo.
And yes, you are touchy. Otherwise you'd use your caps lock more carefully.
