There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here.

They arent 5850's. They are 6570's. Read the whole thread next time.

I did actually read the entire article.  It IS a misprint on their site but no one had confirmed what they were actually shipping.  Actually Insight themselves don't even know what they are shipping as it is a direct from vendor shipment.  The part number could very well be a misprint on the website and in their database.  According to him no one can cancel their order without a 20% restocking fee..."you open it, you own it" were his exact words.

but they were INTENTIONALLY trying to sell them as 5850s in order to get people to buy overpriced 6570s, which by definition is fraud. If they don't give you a full refund when you return, you should take it up with the law.
