    My 6950 certainly wasn't attractive.

    Setting an alert on ebay for that wireless bastard. That is lovely.

    THis GTX 680 is in need of a spot on my shelf too

    Agreed, just something about the overall aesthetic, but personality carries it a long way too with being such a hard failure for nVidia... so much character

    That's not ugly at all. Note the cut-outs to compensate for the cap placement....

    It's engineering with a little bit of flair.

    That's fine kit.

    Next thing I know, you're going to accuse Gainward Golden Sample's of being ugly.

    I actually think that 680 looks awesome, and would love to have it for display. Was it ever actually produced or just a computex item?

    Pretty much every GPU from Asia plastered with Anima crap on it.

    I don't think I have ever owned an ugly GPU. I usually choose the cards that have good looking coolers on them.

    Good, but could be uglier... that one's pretty clear still.

    i do feel that this reference design was a definite regression in styling and aesthetics from the previous generation, disappointed in it.

    wow, that 660 is the slickest looking GPU I ever laid eyes upon, an actual work of art - not UGLY at all and that cooler is excellent

    How heavy is that beast?
