Everything is there for a reason. That metal cover must be there due to the >300W, they won't just make it look like metal for nothing.

The more cost effective they can make it the more money in there pockets.

And 15 cents opposed to 5 cent will definitely make a difference.

Even if was made from plastic or metal nvidia will still sell there gpu at a rated MSRP. And also keep in mine, some people only go for price/performance gpus, the higher the MSRP the lower the bang for bucks = lower sales.

EG. 1 millions sold

1,000,000 x .15 =150,000
1,000,000 x .05= 50,000

A extra 100K for profit. Damn

Way to brush it off by saying the same phrase again and again.

My sig FTW
