If you fancy yourself a fan of the Dark Knight, than what better way to show it than with Batman themed computer components? You can start the transformation with EVGA's new Special Edition Batman: Arkham City themed GeForce GTX 580 videocard.

The special edition graphics card is essentially a GTX 580 Superclocked GPU with Batman artwork plastered on the heatsink assembly. In other words, this is a fierce videocard, both inside and out. It has a core clockspeed of 797MHz, shader clockspeed of 1594MHz, and 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4050MHz (effective) on a 384-bit bus.


EVGA's Batman themed card streets for $530 at Newegg, or about $30 more than the non-theme version. Interestingly enough, it doesn't appear to come with a copy of the game, though for a limited time the non-themed version does include one. Go figure.

Well you do pay $30 for that sticker. I have to agree the non-theme version is the better deal, I mean shouldn't a themed card include a free game as well?

Well if your a fan of the game i would suppose you already have the game, and wouldn't mind paying the extra 30 :D/ Of course it would be a better deal with the game but...

Stupid buyers are stupid. And EVGA's Marketing department obviously has their number.

"An editor from another site said that the game is included and EVGA is working with NewEgg to fix the confusion."

I personally don't see the point of themed gear. This is just like the themed keyboards and crap. I would much rather have a nice looking keyboard without graphics. Personal preference though I am sure many like the graphics on their components.

For me, it just has to work well. Forget the themes, toss out the pretty bullet shaped heatsinks. No matter what they say or do, your PC is not really a gun.

Form and function always trump marketing bling.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
