Default Re: I have a price question about video cards.

The chip.

Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1280-AR GeForce GTX 280 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Same amount and type of memory, same interface, different chip.

As for models with the same chip and different prices, it is usually a different cooler, different speed(s), different memory interface speed, etc. Look at it as a vanilla Mustang and a Mustang Cobra SVT.
