Since this GPU is something of a milestone and a future benchmark in efficiency, I thought I'd try and rally up funds for a review. To quote Mike:

probably need different targets for fanned vs fanless -- the latter is always more complex to test. say... $150 & $200.
So target donation is 150 CAD for now. I can put in a seed of $30.
WHO'S WITH ME?
(or at least interested enough in getting the card in for review to pay part of the cost
Tally so far is $65 out of $150 needed
- Das_Saunamies: $30
- quest_for_silence: $15
- Abula: $20
I'm thinking we should probably aim to get an MSI 750 Ti Gaming 2 GB, as they seem to be readily available, affordable, user-controllable, and quiet - all boxes ticked for SPCR interest. You can suggest alternative cards if they are more attractive.
Edit: added pledges for quest_for_silence, Abula.
