    What about a blue card?

    Anyone like blue?

    Blue's my favorite color, but honestly I don't really care about the PCB's color. I think I'd care more about the enclosure's color. Orange isn't bad though. It's...different. :D

    I like black for computers. I wanna paint the insides a nice matte black, but I don't trust myself with paint.

    Stay on topic please. This is not general nonsense.

    Please do not flame people who join to participate in this contest; it is counter productive for the purpose of this contest, and reflects poorly on the TPU community.

    From what I was told UV PCB does not look that good. It really washes out the inside of your case with a black light, but I have never really seen one to know.

    Now UV trace, that would be very cool. BUT that would be really hard to make IMO.

    how about a black pcb that says palit in uv light on the bottom of the card with a support bar that says palit in led light as well, I would buy palit cards if they had those features and a better heatsink wouldn't hurt either. Black is just so commonly used in pc parts today that it would be easy to continue the theme and other than that I would say white and black would be a kick azz combination for a card as well as many people have stated.

    Thats why I like to stick XFX cards when I buy nvidia cards, The support bar keeps the card from bending

    Not PCB related but I believe someone said something about fan shrouds/pcb covers in different colors. That's a great idea if Palit could sell different shrouds directly. The purple PCB is my all time favorite. I think any color that is bright and stands out would be welcome.

    A purple PCB would be nice, it would match my ECS Mobo. :)

    That would be good, and really shouldnt cost more than a few pence/cents to do, i suppose you would need slightly larger packaging, though seeing the size of some of XFX's boxes in the past, you could still fit 3 dual slot/full length shrouds in a box and be no bigger than one of those beasts.

    Another option if it would make the packaging too large is top plates (like EVERY manufacturer under the sun sticks to Nvidia reference heat sinks, usually without bothering to remove the reference sticker beforehand)

    Do what Apple does. Offer to etch our enclosures for that personal touch.

    How come when ever someone quotes me and replies, you always add to make me look like the dumb one? And whenever I get smacktalked, you're always thanking them?

    I don't get it?

    That white and black contrast is awesome:rockout:! But then I'd have to do some more upgrading to better match everything else to the card...:D
