    I was already taking it a step further: How money of those do they think they'll sell? 1000 worldwide maybe? 2000? Which is nothing at all :D

    Am I the only one who thinks that for 1800€ (at least) they should provide a custom bios as well?

    Nope you're not, but I didn't check Galax' homepage, they might as well. Iirc their HOF cards usually had a higher TDP and sometimes a second bios for LN2 OCs as well.
    Even so, it wouldn't justify that ridiculous price... it's like putting a waterblock on the card, and then charging another 350 $/€ just because.

    That is a lot more than my msi trio. Also seems to be running at a lower clock. What's the reason to buy this one?
    Edit: Nevermind; just noticed it's water-cooled.

    This is card is the embodiment of PC Master Race. Like when you buy it, you suddenly start to glow and leave an RGB trail wherever you walk.

    As I'm unwilling to build a custom watercooled system, where is the Gigabyte Waterforce edition with AIO cooling ?

    Can that RGB trail fill the infinite void which that price will leave in one's bank account? Or soothe butts considering the pounding nVidia is giving?
