I have seen online at different reviews black and green PCB. I was happy to get black; green is so mundane. So what did everyone else get? Black just looks better with my Black Asus board.

O_o green's my favorite color! I didn't know they came in both colors?! ah well... I'll take whatever I get and love it as though it were my child. ;)

Edit: just checked newegg and I got green! w00t

Blacker is better. :D

I got my EVGA 8800GTX around launch, so it's black. I heard that they've stopped making the black PCB, so I guess I got some kind of a collectors item. :D

I got black, thanks Jakup!!

I asked him about green and black. The black ones are a newer version, so whenever you order 8800GTX from Newegg, they will send you black, not green..

Sweet I hope your right. I'm going to check my version when I get home. The new ones are A3 with ultra cores of 710 and A2 have a 620 core.

Of course mine is A2.....

I think evga stopped making the Black ones a while back. I got my 8800GTX superclocked at the beginning of may and it is green. I was hoping for a black one, but no luck for me :(
