designed hardware... where is the world going
This is brilliant, I eagerly await the case mods to go with it.
Someone at Gigabyte obviously has a sense of humor
that is all.
Now all we need is Del Boy's van heatsink.
Don't forget Lian Li's PC 888, modelled after a hotel in Dubai.
I'm kinda disappointed, I would think that they'd use the 5970 for the batmobile cooler Should put it on the fastest model since the batmobile should be awesome!
There was a 8800GT with a Hentai* sticker on it posted in the Demots thread ages ago although I have a feeling it was shopped. I have however seen a few images of graphics cards with varios anime characters printed on the box/card around the place.

EDIT: OK, so it wasn't the demots thread.
I'm still waiting on my custom made Gucci HD 5870

Holy smokes Batman, the Joker has joined the Gigabyte Gang, what dastardly deed wll they do next ???
Call me a curmudgeon if you will but I think Gigabyte has completely missed the point. I mean all credit to them for trying but the whole batmobile appeal of the 5000 series was the black AND red, not to mention it was just a design nod. This, however, looks preciesly like what it is, a cheap bit of plastic stuck on top of a graphics card. It doesn't have any design flair or serve any practical purpose - it doesn't even cover the whole card or duct air out the case.
If you're going to do this sort of thing then at least give it some thought, i.e.
and very sad
be a man and mod your own !!
