    I really dig that cooler. Congrats nVidia design team.
    Although the "GEFORCE GTX" logo should be white, to match the metal (IMO). :ohwell:
    Now, all we need is benchmarks to prove if those ~1000€ are worth paying for...

    I wish they had an edition of the card that was like BARE. Not even a cooler... just card.

    something like eVGA Bare Edition. You get a card. If you want a cooler, buy one. No cables no stickers, no packaging no information materials. It comes in a white box with a warranty. And you save $50 on the card.

    $999.00 USD = £615.60 HUH so how did they work out a price of £829? EU is a little closer in price.

    BT stands for "Billion Transistors"

    Now we know why the card is 999.99 ... they spent all their money on over the top packaging and SAME day shipping ... you know how much Same day shipping cost.

    Hell, they might need too up the price to 1499.99 if they keep doing stuff like this.
