Official Press Release

SteelSeries, a leading manufacturer of innovative professional gaming gear, today announced a new sponsorship of international multi-gaming organisation SK-Gaming. With the new sponsorship SteelSeries and SK-Gaming will be affiliated throughout 2007/2008 and the full SteelSeries product line of headsets, keyboards and mouse pads will be used by SK-Gaming's players.

SK-Gaming was founded in 1997 to play the most important games in the fast growing, and at the time brand new, field of eSport. Since then the organisation has housed some of the most accomplished and successful eSports players in the world and have won championship titles in practically every major discipline. In 2006 SK-Gaming attended a total of 92 eSports events and secured first place in 66 of them.

SteelSeries was founded in 2001 and is a leading manufacturer of professional gaming gear, targeted at the hardcore competitive gaming segment. The company manufactures headsets, keyboards, software, mouse pads and other equipment for gamers striving to take their game to the next level. The company's mission is to create performance enhancing gaming gear that reduces reaction times and enhances precision and accuracy."The gaming gear from SteelSeries is the best in the industry, especially since the release of their SteelSound 5H v2 headset," says Mattias 'SK.Snajdan' Andersen. "I have played with their products in the past and I am glad I can finally play with the full product range of gear."

"Being chosen as a complete provider of gaming gear by SK-Gaming is a milestone for us," says Kim Rom, Head of Communications at SteelSeries. "It's a sign that our strategy of co-development with players and teams work, and that our audio line have reached the level we strived for".

"We have been working with SteelSeries for a long time and till now the relationship has grown every year. This year it will grow even more as the new gaming headsets from SteelSeries will be used by all players in SK-Gaming," says Alexander T. Müller, Managing Director of SK-Gaming. "We are more than happy going the next logical step with them and we are looking forward to developing new great products together with SteelSeries."

“With SK-Gaming being one of the worlds most accomplished gaming organisations, and players performing at the highest level of the game, I can think of few partners more suited for co-development of new products," says Tino Solberg, Head of R&D at SteelSeries. “When the players from SK-Gaming greenlights a product, we know that the performance is topnotch. The perfect example would be the SteelPad S&S, one of the products we have developed with SK-Gaming in the past."

SK-Gaming and SteelSeries will cooperate on product development on a wide range of new products, including mice, keyboards, headsets and mouse pads.

Ok i have a 7950GT Xtreme edition im not using right now and i want to put it to use. I plan on giving this machine i build to my gf as a b-day/V-day/1 year anniversary gift (plus dinner ect). Anyways i plan on putting DFI Lanparty Ultra-D, X2 3800+, 7950GT in a machine together with 2gig of RAM. Only problem is i only have one spare power PSU left and thats an Antec SP 450watt with dual 17amp 12v rails. Thats about 34amps right? Will it hold up for her?

If the psu is of a quality, I would chuck it all together and test it with some heavy gaming.

If u don`t get any twilight-zone results, it should be fine.
