haha I wouldn't go that far but what's with this Elite nonsense?

Does any one know if they have a Classified planned?

Edit. It's not even white is it? it looks silver in the pic next to the box.

Funny fact: It seems EVGA can't make new graphics cards these days without people absolutely hating their cooler design, but sells like hotcakes

Anyway I could care less, TBH I don't really like either EVGA or ASUS' coolers. I prefer Founder's Edition cards far more.

Maybe its just me, but this organic look with the dual fan setup looks much better than the triple fan.

I do like the SC2 look but this one just seems "stretched". Plus the one that was posted in a previous EVGA thread showed a darked more gunmetal/dark grey as opposed to this white. Perhaps thats another reason why im not fussed on this card.

Because as much as we hate their clueless designing on these cards. Their components are top notch. Including GPU bios. If only they knew how to make a good mobo bios and they might win back over. Until then... NOPE. Besides their cards, including reference models are always priced higher than other reference. Its like you are paying extra for their so called "better customer service/ step up program"

I really like the design of this card, but then I also really like the Strix one also.

The "standard FTW3" comes with the gunmetal grey "webbing". You cannot yet order the different coloured ones yet.

Dual fan cooler looks ok, not really my thing, but this triple fan one looks like it was designed by a 10 year old stretching his chewing gum. Awful.

Yeah, not too keen on the color scheme. I still prefer all black or the black and silver scheme. But in my opinion, EVGA has the best support and warranty of their cards. Recently I had two GTX-580 Hydro Copper cards that stopped working due to my Antec 1300 Platinum PSU dieing on me. These cards had a 3 year warranty on them and I purchased an additional 2 year warranty. I sent the cards back and they sent me two new GTX-980 Hydro Copper cards. Now you can get 7 and 10 year warranties for their cards which is definitely worth it.
