:lol: I noticed something peeled off on front and top side of Gainward Geforce 8800GTX card a few months ago and thought the Gainward stickers got loose then I realised it was nylon sheets when I peeled it off. I cant believed the card sticked with nylon sheets in my case heated up to 85c for nearly 2 years. I dont know it was here all the time. :o

Do all cards have it? I just looked at my 260 and I can't see any nylon protection over the casing.

The only thing I feel like getting rid off is that ugly Point of View giant sticker with a Troll on it, does it come off easy?

I took mine off on my 8800GTX&my 6800 Ultra.

My 7900GTX did not have one:)

Come to think of it that might of been what happened to my ASUS 8800GTX.

Look closely on the edge. Maybe you didn't get it.

The top of my card had a warning on the "protective coating" itself instructing to remove it.

If your card has a dull looking finish instead of gloss, you've got it on. I was actually pissed when I got my card because the protective film made it look like it had been handled or used by someone else. Soon as I removed it the card looked great with a high gloss finish.

Same here, I didn't realize there was nylon on my 8800GTS 640 until I swapped it out for an 8800GT....:p
