    Well unfortunately Stuart "Veridian3" Davidson couldnt be here today to post this himself so ill do the honours.

    Fire wasnt possible in the end however in a break between rain showers we've had the chance to play car Vs Geforce. Here for your optical enjoyment are a selection of pictures and video's of the destruction. Enjoy... (NOTE: We removed the shim from the core before the test to see what the weight of a car over the card would do to the core)

    I liked the second one since it had flying parts! :D It would have been neat to see that thing dangled and used as a pinata. I should have suggested that :(

    Haha, so you actually did it :p But c'mon, be honest now - was the card already dead? And why the blurring out of the 'Gainward' logo in the pic originally posted... :eek:
