Well, ladies and gentlemen, who cares about the performance of a card when you can sit there and stare at it, especially when your case has a solid side panel? Mine has a see through one and I still couldn't care less what it looks like.

The girlfriend.

The silver Sapphire one doesn't even look that bad.

You might as well give link to the actual products. What you are doing is like giving me the link to google.com.

I wasn't implying the bricks are the MSI and ASUS. Only pointing out how ugly MSI looks.

It's easy to expect other people will know exactly what you are pointing out by being vague eh?

I don't have a case.

My cables are too short so I have to put my rig directly in front of me on my desk.

When something is directly in front of you everyday, looks starts to matter.

In fact, power consumption matters too 'cause that decides how much hot air is blown into my monitor and bounces back to get into my face.

Spend the $10 on cables that dont suck.

Get a powered USB hub, a USB KB, and longer DisplayPort cable. $30 max.

If you are in love with your PS/2 KB, get a usb adapter for it.

Spending $50+ on a GPU because you wont spend $30 on proper accessories, that is logic right there.

A GPU with a decent cooler costed me $0, since I don't mind the GTX 1060 I have right now and it was the cheapest available.

Might paint it white though, I haven't painted any hardware in a long time and white might look good.

So you complain about aesthetics of a card when you don't even have a case for your computer? I'm sure that's not an eye sore at all. Also if you had a case this whole issue of heat in front of your facing bouncing off the monitor would be eliminated.

I'm having a hard time understanding your logic.

No space for a case on my desk.

Don't have an appropriate case and don't want to pay for one.
