3. You may have a point. Anyways, wait until the 26th.
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.
