There are many things you could build with 11,396 Lego pieces, but for Xiaosheng Li, a 23-year-old freelance writer for Chinese websites and an avid NVIDIA fan, there was only one thing on his mind. He wanted to build a replica GeForce GTX 690 graphics card, so in July he created a digital mockup using Lego modeling software. Three months later, he had accomplished his goal.

According to NVIDIA, the 23-year-old writer came up with the idea after seeing a "crude model of a competing company's graphics card" that also used Legos. Being an NVIDIA fan, he wanted to make a better looking model. It appears he succeeded, having built a realistic looking replica that measures almost 6 feet long, more than two feet wide, and has a working fan.

"I think I have already qualified to become history’s most powerful Nfan," Li wrote in Chinese-language forum post.

Since constructing the giant size replica, which by the way is built to scale, Li has been able to visit NVIDA's headquarters in Santa Clara, California and meet the company's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, who gave him an autograph.
