Is EVGA ( for now ) the only brand which have understand that low performance card, SHOULD NOT!!! have a dual slot cooler. Seriously, I hope that fan design is not the reference one because it simply suck. I way prefer all card in these categories which have a thinner fan and larger ran all over the card.

Providing the price is right, this could turn in to a decent folding card.

I would give 90$ for this card, if you assume that for 70$ you can have a 4670 which perform better but the extra 20$ worth the folding PPD.

Sub- $100 would be a great price point for nVidia to hit with this card. It'd fly off the shelves for htpc's and folders alike. Unfortunately nVidia's market team doesn't know what the word 'budget' means, so it'll likely be around $130 - $140.
