Default Nvidia refrence cards in the open market? WTH

As you all know, their was no such thing as a "nvidia 6600" and stuff like that. It was all handled by 3rd party manafactuers like BFG and XFX.

Well,

I think nVidia do release a limited number of 'official', if you like, cards upon the launch of their new GPU....

I personally don't trust TigerDirect, they have been known the sell gray market products on many occasions and I also find a bunch of really uncommon, eye raising parts there.

10 bucks says that's another manufacturers card that got RMA'd and they're now passing it off as "nVidia" 6600.

I ordered a Leadtek 6600GT from TigerDirect and they were fine. Shipping was fast.
