SHAME ON THEM ALL! for advertising their brand on their products. Do you guys not wear any clothing with the manufacturer name/logo on it either? Do you all remove the badges from your cars as well?
Because you never had to pay for them.

And no I don't wear anything w/ a brand logo visible. And I do remove all the badges from my vehicle (besides sunken logos).

SO how do I know if I need a bridge or not, I just bought a second 560ti and to install beside my first on do I need an SLI bridge ? I am hoping not because I am not looking forward to digging through my closet full of boxes tha tall have PC parts in the pretty much unsorted

Heh... I don't see what all the fuss is about. You either like them or you don't... more bling choices aren't a bad thing even if it's not your particular kettle of fish.

Actually, none of my clothing has any manufacturers marketing on it. And yes, most of the badges on my all black truck will be removed.

Well I certainly did not expect to see so many responses on a thread about SLI bridges.
