I put the question to Palit but got no response. Their graphics cards are cheaper than the competition and are fairly numerous, so I was looking at buying one. It's the lack of an official forum for user feedback that makes me feel the company is untrustworthy. Google reveals a forum.palit.biz which was active in 2008. The website seems to still exist because the browser has only ever responded with timeouts rather than "Server does not exit" when attempting to visit the site.
