The "Badge", is a small pcb on top of the normal pcb above the GPU to shove power in there better than how it is normally done. thumb.gif
Just thought I'd point it out, as judging by your use of"Badge" you might just think its a badge for the sake of it tongue.gif

Also, I'm getting the 7970 version of this for christmas, sadly not the 680 as I'm an eyefinity gamer rolleyes.gif
