You could also modify a twin frozr (for example) and put in your own LED fans to add to the effect youre after

I'll probably get a MSi gtx 570 on sale for 309.99 at NCIX this week with free shipping. I'll just need to peel off the MSI logo on the side of the shroud.

The silver/aluminum shroud really doing suit a glossy white / matte black build.

Part of the reason I'm getting rid of the 460 cyclone cards is because of the aluminum fins and heatpipes showing

I think I'll hit the generic gtx 570 shroud with some white krylon fusion, end up with a black PCB and a white shroud, maybe pick up a EVGA 570 reference backplate if they promise not to charge me triple the product in shipping.

If you're looking for a black and white shroud, how about this:

Newegg.com - Palit NE5X570HF10DA GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) Sonic Platinum 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

With a stock 800MHz core this should make a good upgrade from your 460SLi set. I'm currently using two 2GB Palit 560s in one of my rigs, the dual fan HSF setup runs very quiet.
