Well, the GeForce 300 series was OEM only. You can find them in a lot of prebuilt desktops (and some laptops). They were nVidia's first DX10.1 graphics cards, and I guess after spending so much time downplaying DX10.1 relevance, they didn't wanna make a big fuss on their release and went straight to DX11.
