Using In-Game Money To Buy Real Video Cards?

I've heard of spending real world cash on in-game items but this is the first time I've heard of in-game currency used to buy a GeForce 560 GTX.

CCP Games, the developer behind EVE Online, has struck a deal with Nvidia for players to use in-game currency -- PLEX -- to purchase GeForce 560 GTX graphics cards, which run almost $200 at retail. That's fake money for real items, folks. Nvidia and CCP will start by selling 100 graphics cards (limit one per EVE account) to test the demand.
