    Iam guessing the guy on the box is meant to be "Gamepool", the GPU equivalent of Deadpool.

    Looks cheap and nasty. I'll either be going for EVGA or Asus's offering.

    Do you know how much they paid Sebastian Linus to pose as a clown?

    If the pricing corresponds with the "design" , then some people will buy it hopefully. Anyway it would have been better for "Galaxy" if the photos didn't leak :)

    If you are planning to water cool the card...I think this is the way to go ...Just my 2 cents

    If they sold it cheap because it was so homely looking, I'd put a bag over it and run the ugly little bugger in my rig all day long. The ugly ones run better. :nerd:

    Ugly, repelling and bad.

    NVidia should forbid Galax to produce GeFrorce cards...

    If the cooler does it's job effectively and without too much noise I could care less how it looks. Provided the price isn't jacked up that is.

    The cooler is terribly ugly and so is the box it comes in but what about the picture quality it self? isn't it strange that its so awful? like it was taken with a cheap smartphone camera.

    Edit: I have a feeling that this is a fake, it looks like someone photoshoped the reference cooler all black and added a fake Galax box behind it. Even smart phones can take better pictures than this, having poor image quality makes it much harder to distinguish it from a real picture.

    Well it's a leaked image, so the image quality is what it is. I doubt it's fake, it's simply one of those cards, that are $100 cheaper than the Founder's Edition and it shows...

    i am thinking about what would happen if this card was priced around $500-550$ instead of the 599$ tag

    We're still talking about release price... it will come down to 550 eventually I guess.
