It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

There is some pretty stiff competition around the $200 price point, but XFX have picked a good platform for their first unit.

The distinctive styling will be a thumbs up (or down) depending on preferences. I'm not sure about myself, but at least it has been executed well.

If they're using Seasonic parts then I'm very interested to see some of their other offerings (namely some lower-wattage mainstream units). I really like the color scheme with the green fan, but I usually paint my fans that way anyways so that shouldn't be too much of a surprise.
