Not sure how some of these Gigabyte engineers think. They honestly took time in designing their new motherboards to make them aesthetically pleasing. But yet they still make every one of their videocards with a nasty ugly blue PCB.

I'd say it matches the blue colour scheme of all the new P67 motherboards and crazy bright blue LEDs on basically every electronic device released in the last decade.

Blue is the new beige.

Actually, the 3GB cards are approaching the $600 mark....

Smile Video Cards

Regardless of the look, which I'm no fan of either lowfat, they still perform with admirable results. It makes u

wonder if they're trying to squash the reference sales.

It's a good thing the cards r generally only visible along the top edge rather than the front when installed.

Tolerable I suppose. Low sound with high performance is what I'm after. now if only XFX would get back 2 Nvidia.
Love those dbl lifetime warranties.

Great job on the review btw.
