Yeah with the most of our money spent, a back plate should at least be added as an extra wink.gif

I think it would be nice, but a matching pcb would be just fine for me. Hate it when the cooler is black for example and you get some stupid coloured pcb, instead of a matching matte black, gimme dat matte black pcb mad.gif

I actually really like my Gigabyte GTX 670 without a backplate. The blue PCB looks good in my blue/purple themed lighting.

I think it would look even better with a back plate.

I honestly don't mind. As long as the pcb is black, I'm fine with naked cards. So naughty. tongue.gif
