So now I'm confused. . . are EVGA and POINT OF VIEW the same company with different names for different regions? Because the two 8600GTS cards below look exactly the same (EXCEPT THE DECALS).

Ok, I just thought each company used their own boards but I noticed these two had everything in the same spots. I guess it could just be the propietary chips and software/firmware on them. Thanks

Or it could be that nVidia makes them and these third-party companies just put their own sticker on there (afaik that's what they did with the 8800's).

Ah, in the past I know companies like PNY, EVGA, ASUS, etc had different formats and boards. Of course I haven't really looked at the 7000 series not enough of an upgrade for me to do it. BUT NOW : )
