Fake NVIDIA Graphics Cards Spotted In Germany

If you are shopping for a budget GPU, be warned that there are reportedly fake NVIDIA graphics cards floating around in Germany right now.

"Several fake NVIDIA cards آ— probably GeForce GT 440 آ— have had their BIOS reflashed to report themselves as GeForce GTX 660. They were sold under the brand "GTX660 4096MB Nvidia Bulk" but only deliver 1/4 of the speed of a real GTX 660. Investigations are ongoing into who did the reflashing, but several hundred of them have already been sold and are now being recalled."
