Sapphire

no you can still buy BBA cards over here, just not very often. Connect3d is ati's official uk manufacturer, but their cards and BBA cards here are still different

Well this HIS looks like a nice one to me. For some reason, HIS arrived here to Hungary before the rest. Currently only HIS and GeCube (listed as GeXCube for some reason) are available here.
