    I could understand if someone is trying to sell fake cards like that in third world countries but to make 440 and then flash their BIOS, put it in a fake package and rename it to 650/650 and then sell it in Germany, Jeez!? That dude/company who imported those cards (if they know about it) has a balls of steel.

    I remember happy times about 13, 14 years ago when I had bought dozens of Club 3D ATI Radeon 9550 128MB DDR AGP8X cards: below heatsink was fully and 100% operative Radeon 9600 chip cabable for OC to reach a level of much expencive Radeon 9600PRO model! Of course driver has detected those cards like a 9550 model and no one here wanted to forge or was selling those cards like an 9600 or 9600PRO models. But with little OC help of ATI Tray Tools those cheap cards were gaming beasts :D
