    Nvidia!, Brilliant Idea!

    Now Nvidia can get rid of therir old GPU stock without having to pay for the toxic cleanup and make money at the same time. What an evil Geneus Idea, way to go. Have the public be responsible for the trashing of old GPU's by buying your GPU keychains.
    Roph says thanks.

    For that price you'd think Jen-Hsun Huang would bring it to your door.

    for a key chain $2.95 shipping is fair price, $4.95 is ok for me at least but beyond that it's a ripoff. I can ship a whole graphic card for less than $9 within US and I've done Ebay. It's like advertising $1.99 for an item and charges $19.99 shipping for it. It's marketing but it also considered a scam. I buy a few DS game shipping all the way from Hong Kong and they only charges $1.99 shipping and sometime it's even free.

    Anyone know what the package look like? Hope they didn't charge a premium for that too.

    First they do rebadging to sell more of the same GPUs, now they are selling you failed GPUs from misproduced products.

    Talk about squeezing blood from a rock.

    Props to the Nvidia marketing department, keeping the company afloat...

    How the hell are they charging over 89% of the product's original price just for shipping? :wtf:

    bulky keys can put undue strain on the locking mechanism for Vehicles, make it where you cant turn the key to start etc.

    more scratches too ?.. but i guess that depends what kinda night you had the day before and how many keys you have and how you open your car door with your keys huh.


    i only have 8 keys ( just house keys ). and there all separated by key rings so it's easy to know which is which even in the dark lol..

    Don't have a car so that be a none issue for me... It would of been better and more cool if they took away all that metal and just had a chip in a see though casing being able see the pins to the fake chip lol... And not some bulky piece of metal which is funny and i will laugh my ass off if i see anyone with one..
