Ever wanted to feel like a kind soul while purchasing one of the fastest cards available? Well now you can! Canadian "Premier Computer Store" NCIX have put up an auction for Asus' rather exclusive Ares graphics card, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Red Cross towards relief for the recent Pakistan floods.
This top-of-the-line card features two HD5870 GPUs, 4GB of GDDR5 memory, and clock speeds of 850MHz/1600x2=3200MHz/4.8GHz for core/stream/memory respectively. The card comes packaged in a large, aluminum locking case with a ROG gaming mouse nestled beside it.
Taking a look at our review of the card, we can see the Ares quite handily beats out the HD5970 as well as a typical Crossfire HD5870 setup. It is quite simply one of the fastest cards out on the market at this time.
The auction ends on September 1st and has already garnered a bidding price of $1,300 over 22 bids in its first day of being up. Be sure to keep an eye on it here.
