IF that was the case then anything spent on aesthetics of our computers is a waste of money. If I was rockin EVGA video cards I would buy one in a millisecond. I hope other manufacturers start to do this as well.

So a cheap $30 hunk of plastic with a huge smack of a logo branding on it looks awesome these days? Wow kids... Talk about paying the company to advertise.

A cheap black bridge would look infinitely better.

i like the design to be honest but maybe they should charge around $20. I might buy one when I go SLI.

Ummm paying the company to advertise? We all do that with our Evga cards, Corsair cases, etc. Why do you think there are show your machine threads on basically all tech/computer forums?

I thought it was $25 not 40, but really what is an extra $25-40 when compared to a couple thousand. That said I think evga should include these with their high end cards like the 780 or Titan. Or free when you purchase two high end cards, something like that.

It's a very niche market, they'll probably only sell around 500 of them, I doubt they'll even make a profit.

OMG a company putting their logo on their products?#%@!?? How dare they!

What suckers everyone is with their branded motherboards, gpu's, ssd's, psu's, cpu coolers and cases paying companies to advertise.

I hate branding on computer products. EVGA is horrible for big ugly logos all over the place. If something has a big tacky logo and it isn't removable, I won't buy it.

evga seems to have done a good job building a bit of a fan base who might actually buy something like this. kudos to evga, but you're a sucka if you pay money for one.
