    Heh .... was going to post about the Yestons and see the n00b beat me to it. :D
    Some of those hurt my eyes. Gamer's Nexus included that Waifu in their 5700 XT roundup. Subjectivity to be sure. Cultural, whatever. Suppose there is enough a market for that sort of thing if they offer a $1,400 kitty case to show off your pulsing 580.

    Did you purposefully cut out the part of his statement that makes an appreciable difference in what he's saying? Erek is a bit notorious around here for collecting old video cards (particular 3DFX stuff but I've seen him post a bunch of other old and/or rare stuff). Hell, I bet most of the old green PCB cards in this thread are exactly what he considers to be a good looking GPU. Different strokes and all that. Point being, for his personal collection of old video cards, a small, sleek, modern looking card like the one Intel is showing off obviously doesn't fit his collection (which is the important part you've ignored), but that doesn't mean he still can't acknowledge that it's an ok looking card.

    Why are you so determined to pick a fight with this guy?

    Because I agree with him and you seem to be being confrontational for no reason.

    Not trying to troll bud.

    Just something I've seen erek get some flack for.

    With regards to the topic at hand. These cotton candy colored girly gpu's are hilarious.

    The scantily clad anime girl ones are just plain creepy.

    If it makes any difference to this conversation chain, I did not perceive Pendraqgon1's message as being confrontational. Text interpretation is defintely subjective...
