They can make the card completely bare and get away with it.


What im getting to is why cant we just buy OEM cards.

Skip the manual, the cables, the out dated DVD

I just want the card as it looks on nvidia.com
Thats actually not a bad idea.

why aren't manufacturers like coolermaster or even swift-tech making any back plates for different VGA cards?

There's a very small market for them of which I am a part of. Lol.

Not enough people would buy them to make it worthwhile for companies that don't already sell video cards. EVGA had it easy because they've been selling backplates for as long as I can remember so each year they only have to make tiny adjustments.

Where a company such as CoolerMaster would have to start from scratch and ensure that their product will not cause any malfunction of the card. Otherwise selling a 20$ backplate tends to get real expensive when you have to replace someone's card for shoddy workmanship.

Won't backplate add bit more protection from radiation? Also lessen the chance of signals/frequencies getting mixed up with other componants.

Not saying that it's true, just heard it somewhere.

I mean, why cant more people do it like that, why do they make the front all shiney when we cant see it.

Is it just me that wants this? Maybe im a freak


obsessed with aesthetics? Look at your title... That's not aesthetically pleasing.

the EVGA backplates have more quality and looks comparing the one's on the ATI cards
