Very nice looking card... like the Revolution 700 Deluxe (AtI HD4870X2) but instead of 3 slot cooler design it's a 2 slot... NICE

I thought a lot more people will be happy to know NVIDIA lifted restrictions over AICPs to come up with custom-design cards for GTX 260 (55nm).

They are a little late.. They always are. Why don't they let them do it from the get go?
