    For all hardware, even motherboards? I mean, the vast majority of all motherboards are designed in Taiwan, and a huge portion of all motherboards are made there.

    the prices here in taipei are decent (not great) compared to the prices of the us online shops. the availability of different brands however completely sucks here.

    the (street)market for mobos and gfx is dominated by asus, gigabyte and msi. there are hardly any other brands (maybe else, leadtek, albatron and sparkle) i have not found brands like evga, bfg, xfx, sapphire and many others for gfx. for mobos i havent found dfi and abit (and other brands, like i said its only asus gigabyte and msi for mobos). for harddiscs i havent found samsung (except for laptops). lcd screen brands are prety much covered tho.

    what sucks most is the high prices for medium to high end graphics cards and the fact that the shops dont seem to be able to get the other brands even if they wanted to, apparantly that stuff is just not distribited here.

    when i moved to taiwan just over a year ago i thought i entered hardware shopping heaven with so many hardware shops in one place lol. boy was i wrong
    oh well... back home (netherlands) they may have all the brands and types i want but at least here i wont have to pay the 19.5% tax

    I'm not really sure if this is the correct thread, but does anyone here know how I would go about getting a hacked bios to flash a a normal GTO, to 16 pipes? I'm assuming the bios on your site is specifically for the Sapphire special limited editon, so I couldn't use it.

    as far as i know only the sapphire gto2 and the connect3d gto can be flashed to unlock the extra 4 pipes....never heard of any other gto where it works
    (your card just overclocks great i think, no unlocking)

    The Connect3d X800gto is selling for $150 on newegg, seems like a better deal than the gecube...
