Is Themed hardware the way forward?

Titan Xp Star Wars is a big step for themed hardware. Is that something you'd like to see more of?

... Maybe soon we'll be able to easily custom-order every single card, and the cover will get 3D-printed quickly at your local/internet shop.
I smell custom PC builder sites even those big brands, doing it pretty soon. They simply give an option and choose what you want just like any other options.

I'll buy a huge whack of Marvel-themed cards, as will many others, I am sure. Can't wait.

I also love the greater than 75% "no" responses. I guess the majority of people don't want PC gaming to be "mainstream" just yet, but I know that each and every one of those responses would change if the card was made tailored to their own personal preference. Maybe soon we'll be able to easily custom-order every single card, and the cover will get 3D-printed quickly at your local/internet shop.
Agreed matey :)

The problem is the licensing to use those trademarks on the VGAs, and I think only the larger companies have the money to make it work. Custom PC builders and smaller brands simply can't afford it, IMHO.

The issue is, there are only so many theme's. And all companies would have to produce "Starwars" theme items at once, or youd be stuck waiting for the memory and the main board, blah never happen.
