Default NVIDIA selling their own cards in the retail space?

http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1551718




I'm half expecting some sort of announcement from NVIDIA regarding this.

NVIDIA and Best Buy are working together to offer PC customers the opportunity to experience firsthand the latest in PC technologies right inside Best Buy stores. As part of this broad initiative, NVIDIA is supplying to Best Buy specific GeForce models built and supported by NVIDIA. These products will only be available at Best Buy and will complement GeForce products from our partners. We will provide more details on this next week.
Broad initiative, interesting...

I'll provide more information when it's available.

If I can get 'em for as cheap as I think I can... I may have to get some simply to play with. Maybe throw a couple reviews out as well... would be fun at the least. And give you a friendly hand with helping to boost the review activity of this site.

Too bad he didn't mention any prices. I imagine, they could be a lot cheaper this way, on the other hand, it might make their partners, let's say unhappy.

He has been that way since 5 series ati was released, and plenty at [H] have jumped on the fanboi bandwagon..

He actually used the words green kool-aid in his review. Way to be objective Kyle..
