Rubbing Alcohol is still being judged by the masses

Default Anyone know how Sapphire cards are?

My nearby computer store is selling what they call ATI Clone 8500 OEM cards for 170$ (CND). I was told their Clone cards are made by Sapphire. Anyone know anything about this company? Is this a good card? Cause the price sure is right...
