The I-O Data Banshee is certainly an interesting card. You can clearly see that this was made (and developped) in Japan, it looks heavy duty with the huge amount of electrical components used on this rather compact layout. There is also a high quality fan installed. It looks more like an industrial part than a regular consumer graphics card.
