The new Palit 3080 cards are real ugly and the design blocks airflow, I bet it makes them louder.
Some kinda muppet designed them.

I had an interesting hour this morning just going through my old purchases.

I went from the fantastically ugly 4890,complete with random armored female.

To the awesome looking 5870 like 6 months later (I think from memory I actually had the 4890 earlier but there’s two on the order so I’m thinking one was a warranty replacement). The difference is largely sticker but just goes to show.

Interestingly the 5870 I ordered 3 days after the 480 GTX was reviewed so I obviously wasn’t impressed.

Aside from that, I realised just *how* much I paid for a 7900 GTX ‘extreme’ in 2006. Which made me feel better about current prices, but also that I’ve proven my “do not care about red vs green” credentials for a long time.

Also that I was a fucking idiot and should have invested that money in my twenties (amazon shares equiv to that GTX would be about $45k) and hooked up with more women rather than playing mmorpgs and nerding out.

Mates, we are doing it all wrong. These are not ugly, they're unique, just like all of us :)
The more taco sees these, the more she likes!

Fascinating!
