Default I have a price question about video cards.

Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-N870-AR GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

General specs:
Chipset
Chipset Manufacturer NVIDIA
GPU GeForce 9600 GT
Core clock 650MHz
Stream Processors 64
Memory
Memory Clock 1800MHz
Memory Size 1GB
Memory Interface 256-bit
Memory Type GDDR3

Alright, the price is around $150. I remember when the 8 series cards came out and people were hitting the 1GB mark using cards that went up to the $800 price range. So tell me, what makes a card $150 and another card $300+ with the same memory size/interface/type?
