    Ok, I understand now.
    I notice the Kingpin 780 and other 780 Classified cards are a lot wider/taller than the mounting bracket.
    Yeah, big ass cards for sure, they have big fans on them too.

    Yeah as Ryan says Gary, for example here is one of each.

    Reference one (These are released first and although they can all be different brands they will all look identical)

    What's a reference card and how do you know it is? I've not seen an ad saying "This is a reference card".
    I believe These are *reference cards* as I have been led to believe and you can use those basic statistics as a reference point to any card search. You use the nvida pages to compare the little bells and whistles they add to a given card and then make a more informed purchase on the PCIE peripheral device as other parts also have such starting points.:)

    Speaking of 660s, I don't know why they gave it 2gb of memory but only 1 and a half lanes(192 memory interface width) to use it, that's bottlenecking the card, from a point of Nvidia, the all mighty, that is pretty low on the scale of .......... If you are going to push a 2gb memory product on me, at least have the decency to make it 256 2 lane card, and not 1.5gb with 500mb extra chip. I don't like that and they lost major points with me.

    Give them more money and you can get the 256 bit interface.
