They got to make money.

If the idea doesn't catch on:
Another $20 X 10% of the Cards they sell = paying for production of the thing.

If the idea catches on big time with everybody:
An additional $20 X 51% of all 295 sold = more profit then selling just their own 295 cards.

The idea could not have been implemented before the release, and it can't be given away for free. Because they have to make money. Its not like they are Oil Sheiks or something.

But now that I think of it. THUMBS UP TO BFG for the free HDMI cable included with their 295s. MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!
BFG !

And Hmmmm... (now that I think of it) I probably woulda' jumped ship if EVGA gave that Backplate for free and a free HDMI cable too. Would have (now that I think of it) maybe never returned to BFG. MUAHAHAHAHA LUV Competition!

Agreed I dont think its an outrage would I have perfered it was part of the original design sure.
I do like the fact that EVGA is offering it as an option, and I bought one because I perfer it over the naked PCB.

Again you cant blame EVGA the cost of the tooling and r&d has to be recovered somehow no?

The fact that they offer it is a good idea if you think its to much dough dont buy it pretty simple.


again your a hater. You dont even own one so quit the crying.

Of course that is not true.

Anyways, It is a nice option I think, saying that it should have came with it in the first place is like saying that a new car you bought should have came with a subwoofer in the trunk, it is not required, just a nice add-on.
