GeForce GTX 260 HC


I currently have an 8800GTS 512 *G92* (2) Screens

A.) 28 INCH WIDE
B.) 24 INCH WIDE

I am thinking about getting a new GTX 260...I was looking at this one
http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...eries%20Family

My question is this, why is it so cheap? $450????? *SEE BOTTOM* They are losing like almost 80$.... I am not complaing I am just curious like if it's the FULL BLOCK/doesnt look like it comes with fittings

The HYDRO block alone is $180.00

And the card is $344.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130374



It was either that or this one

CHEAPER and the Memory Clock is a tad higher. Does anyone have the GeForce GTX 260 HC - Includes Co-op Backplate

well a normal non-OC'd gtx 260 is $280 from EVGA. Some brands like PNY even sell it for $250 before rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133229

No idea if the HC one is worth it, anyone know how much higher it can go?
