A top model, Peter Brady and Nvidia graphics tech

At Nvidia's GeForce 8800 launch event, a top model gets hoots and hollers.

It was hard to tell which version of America's Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry got more attention during Nvidia's GeForce 8800 launch event in San Jose, Calif., yesterday. Hard-core gamers drooled, hooted and hollered just as much for the digital version of Adrianne (pictured) created on the new graphics hardware unveiled by the company as they did for the real version, who took the stage shortly after the digital image appeared.

Curry, famous for winning a reality show (of sorts), was joined onstage by her new husband, Christopher Knight. You may remember him as everyone's favorite awkward middle child, Peter Brady, on The Brady Bunch. But Knight actually has computer graphics street cred, as a founder of a 3D computer imaging company in the early 1990s.

Nvidia's new graphics cards are available right away for creating the digital hottie of your dreams, or for killing robots in any number of new games.
