The flipside of the coin however is that when imposing such limitation on the high-end GPUs it pretty much kills off the fun for many of you. Extreme performance and tweaks drive the overclocking community and in the end drive the sales of the complete product line.
ya sure they may be saving money on rmas, but all their enthusiasts will jump ship, costing them, hopefully more, in the long run. once again, goodbye nvidia, FUUUU

I'll bet you as soon as evga heard msi was going to try and give the lightning voltage tweaking through software, i'm sure they went to nvidia and asked to put more presssure on msi. it's clear to me that evga tries to nickel and dime you with their accessories...backplate, highflow bracket, ev bot??? include it in a freaking package that isn't overpriced ffsEdited by EM2J - 7/24/12 at 6:46am
