Favorite Looking GPUs?

post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 
I didn't want to goo off topic in the other thread discussing the opposite, so here's the opposite of it.

What's some your favorite looking GPUs?

Here's a few of mine.

One is the GeForce 6800 and GeForce 6800GS/GT/XT/LE. I don't know why, but the stock cooler on this has been, and even still remains, one my favorites. This is when heatsinks started really growing from the old days (some of the GeForce FX had blowers but I don't count those). It was also quite a GPU.





Another is the Triplex (not around anymore?) GeForce 4 Ti 4200. This one might seem ugly in some ways these days, but back then, that was a very good looking and unique card.




And the following might be a little bit of bias since it's from my upgrade, but I do like it (I'm referencing the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, but the GeForce 8800GT looks alright too).





Lastly, it might be small/weak, but I liked it at the time. It was Purple! I added the fan to it.



Interesting note about that last one, it's a GeForce 4 MX440 w/AGP8x, and the VRAM speed was underspecified (should have been 200MHz/400MHz DDR and most overclocked higher, this one was 150MHz/300MHz DDR maximum!). This made it perform even worse. Despite the Purple/Maroon PCB usually indicating PNY of that time, I think AOpen is the guilty manufacturer of this card, at least that's what Googling the VRAM number indicated, and AOpen made a similarly colored GeForce FX 5500 underspecified with that same VRAM!

Any card you always thought looked good? Any you though looked even better after getting it?

In my opinion all the EVGA's are pretty darn good looking. Nice and simple with a dark finish. My favorite.

I absolutely love the look of MSI's Twin Frozr II cards. Sleek and elegant. And did I mention shiny?
