It's great that EVGA does this, but it begs the question.... Shouldn't this be coming from Nvidia???????

Yes. To be honest, i'm glad to see a 3rd party forcing nVidias hand. Hopefully they (nV) stop being goddamn slackers around the office.

I actually see this as a fantastic marketing ploy for both EVGA and Nvidia. It shows the consumer that EVGA really respects their buyers and that there is ever continuing development and enhancements with Nvidia products. It's rather ingenious if you ask me.
