    I have a feeling that this card will be very very expensive. It looks nice tho, and that OC panel is a cool gadget. But lets wait how it performs.

    just wanted to clear up that i mean no offense to anyone - i simply think that thing looks disgustingly ugly, and looks as impractical as can possibly be. i'm astonished anyone likes it.

    N260GTX is easy enough to figure out, but I really wish vendors would just leave the damn name alone. Its bad enough that nVidia can't figure out what the hell they want to call their products. We don't need vendors trying or continuing this bull anymore either. I personally get sick of it.

    Here's an idea:
    MSI GTX 260
    MSI GTX 260 Lightning
    MSI GTX 260 Made Go Faster Edition
