When the GTX560Ti Calibre from Sparkle arrived we were stunned. Sparkle had been quiet for quite a while and suddenly this card appeared that was blisteringly fast, quiet and damn good value. It was proof you don't need to sell a kidney to get a decent level of eye-candy in the latest titles. Read our review here.
