Take a look at this link, it claims by newegg, that its a Biostar 7900GS. Interesting, nice cooler too. But take a look at the pictures...

Well, duh, its obvious that Biostar is trying to be sneaky and pretending that a person who wants to buy a Radeon is getting an Nvidia model.

Christmas Day:
SON: "Oh boy, daddy! I can't wait to open my HIS Radeon X850XT PE!! It will give me the best 2nd generation technology performance!"
<Tears off paper and strokes the "Radeon" label on the box>
FATHER: "I couldn't think of a better gift for you, son. This will enable you to more effectively waste time with your video games!"
<SON screams, and drops the box>
SON: "DADDY, NO! ITS NVIDIA!! PLEASE NO! IS THERE NO GOD IN THIS WORLD! WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY! NVIDIA!??!! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"
<FATHER puts hands over his eyes, weeping>
FATHER: "Damn you Nvidia. DAMN YOU BIOSTAR! YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS TREACHERY!"
<FATHER and SON both kill themselves by stabbing themselves with inferior computer parts>
THE END

See, its a plot for Biostar to "get rid" of all the Radeon lovers in the world.
:D
