Hidden meaning

I regularly tinker with computers, which is why some months back I found myself in possession of this video card. Note that the card -- which generally you'd find inside a PC case, completely out of sight -- features an illustration of a thin, pretty, busty, scantily clad young woman brandishing some kind of martial arts weapon. (In a craggy snowscape.) Why? The likely reasons are too depressing to contemplate.

I eventually returned the card, but not because of her.
