    I agree, it would look very clean if it was just white with the model number in black.

    I want the top plate to be white, since that is the part I will be able to see when in use.

    Wow... The sticker on this bulk-order generic card looks different to the stickers other companies have chosen to place on their bulk-order generic cards.

    Apologies for the generic comment applied to all 6900 series card news posts.
