    Well, it may be just me, but I like the sleek look of the reference GTX 470. I looooooove it. It'll look even better when I get a water block on it. :D

    I know you mentioned it in your first post, but I think the eVGA GTX 460 EE is a very slick looking card.

    [​IMG]

    The silk-screened lettering and swoosh design, along with the shape of the cooler, the all black color scheme, and the inlayed chrome eVGA logos, really make it look nice. It is nice to see a card with silk screened designs on them instead of a shitty ugly sticker like most cards today.

    More pictures here, along with a 360° View.

    The 9800GT is reference, unless you are referring to that god awful sticker.

    And the 7800GTX is referecne also(and the pictured one isn't even an ASUS card).

    x1950xtx - that was one badass card and was the first to sport the modern double-slot with a fan at the back blowin' air out of the case.

    Also forgot to mention that I'm partial to the reference HD 2900 XT looks:

    [​IMG]

    The cooler flame design on the see-thru plastic shroud was just bad ass looking.

    The x1950 Pro was pretty tight looking too:

    I think this is sexy.

    I think there is a problem with the picture. Will fix it in the morning.

    I find the GTX 295 and 4870x2 quite appealing to the eye ;)

    The images on cards never really did anything for me, I am a huge fan of the dual slot exhaust coolers, the more innovative the cooling the more attracted I am to the card in general.

    I think the 470 looks the sleekest, but the 4870x2 most badass. Also the 5XXX series Batmobiles looks just great.

    This is the graphics card I find sexiest:
    [​IMG]

    Oh wait did I accidentally post a picture of me and my girl, oh right I forgot PCB's AND COOLERS AREN'T SEXY, maybe elegant, maybe sleek, possibly even with an element of beauty but not sexy...

    sorry for the rant, If were talking about a really cool cooler design that comes together with a theme:
