    A White MB would look amazing with this white graphics card.

    I wonder how much more it costs to make a white PCB as i would pay more for one

    Looks unique and the 1st NV partner to announce such a beast - altho EVGA are about the launch the 460x2 this one is using the current GPU with extended shaders etc...

    Personally, I think the white thing is pretty over done.

    I think it looks pretty cool actually, certainly different anyway.
    But it seems a little pointless trying to design a fan system to cool it, when a waterblock would be more suitable.

    Personally I think white PCB's look rather fresh. We have seen all colours. Remember when we first had red, blue, purple or black PCB's. They all look rather passé now.

    Thinking about it, its been a while since I saw a green MB

    Now a clear PCB would look amazing!

    Hmm, this could be tempting. The last time I ran dual GPUs was on a Voodoo 5 5500 PCI. Absolute beast at the time.

    Because it's a prototype. They will have wanted space to change the componentry and layout as required, then they'll shrink it for production. Hopefully...

    Most certainly. (IMO) I'd love to build a machine using matching all - white PCBs if it didn't cost significantly more than equivalent 'normal' coloured boards.

    Yes, I think that white cases are over - done, with world + dog trying to ape Apple, but I'd probably not put the white boards in a white case; I think that something that contrasts with them would work nicely.

    I like dual GPU boards, but once the heatsink is added one that size would quite possibly be heavy enough to sink my boat :p

    Oh yes, dual GTX560, my wet dream... But why only in all-white format? White is so bloody practical color... Still, it is better than atrocious red PCB from Gainward/Palit.

    Does anyone else find that White PCBs look edible?

    They make me think of White Chocolate.. Om nom nom..

    Hmmm interesting card but I am dissapointed with only 1GB of VRAM per GPU. On cards like this I would have preffered to see 2GB especially considering the power on offer means 2560x1600 resolutions (or Surround) with eye candy is easily do-able at decent framerates.

    We made it abundantly clear that "White is Nice", as far as pcb's go, when you mentioned the 1st white Galaxy (KFA) video-card. Which leads me to the conclusion that you really DON'T read these comments.
    I'd be interested in one or more of these cards as long as they run cool enough since watercooling these are out of the question. As are all Galaxy (KFA) video-cards since they all use non-reference pcb's.
