I'm pretty sure the main selling point for Killer NIC cards has always been the ridiculous heatsink. I don't foresee the K1 selling as well.

Good to see Falcon Northwest staying strong by providing top notch products in it's PC's. I thought the main selling point was that the NPU takes the load of the CPU for faster online gaming.
