    No worries. Couldn't resist, I had a chuckle when I saw it.

    OP: Unless you're having problems related to memory I'd stick with the 690 for now tbh.

    I'm not here to give you anything. I'd rather not post than post some dodgy charts from an unknown site. You just look at that and you'll see it makes no sense. Have a look.

    The score is pretty much bullshat in all honesty. I highly doubt it's even close to being accurate.

    lol dude, i wasn't the 1st guy to post that source and it doesn't look rubbish to me. Whatever...

    edit: this guy posted the info, i just passed it away. I don't see anyone calling him a troll, like i said lets wait for other sources, maybe guru3d.

    Apparently fact is irrelevant when it differs from his belief...
