Nerd dreams: The hottest graphics cards
Primarily graphics cards should calculate pixels as fast as possible, but the eyes of a hardware freak are very pleased if the manufacturer gave them a nice design.
Modern graphics cards basically perform one task: They are supposed to display games as fast and as nice as possible. But if games look nice why shouldn't this apply for graphics cards, too? That's why some graphics cards manufacturers pay much attention to the design of their products.
There's no accounting for taste, of course. Nevertheless we chose more than 50 graphics cards which are pretty nice in our opinion. Among them are the two Asus graphics cards Mars GTX 295 and Matrix GTX 285 as well as the MSI GTX 275 Lightning, the Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 Vapor-X 2G and the KFA2 Geforce GTX 275 OC (AC). Other cards are by Gigabyte, ECS, Powercolor and MSI.
Please tell us in the comments which of them is your favorite model. We are also interested in your opinion about the cards we have chosen or any other product you regard to be some hot piece of eye candy.
