Is it just me or is Elbox a strange company? I appreciate all the products they have created, but they seem to move in mysterious ways...

I just sent an email asking what kind of price reduction I could get for a G-Rex PCI board.
I simply love the Mediator. Have one in my A3500T.

I'd have to agree that Elbox has some unusual sale aproaches, but as long as it works! Anyone remember the winter sale where you would get discounts depending on minus degree tempertures in Poland? The days I checked it was above zero :)


shoe: perhaps it's time to find a cheap grexx too, don't they give them away free almost? Hehehe...btw, how's the 128MB simms working in your blizzard?
