Just out of curiosity, can I buy a fan to go on a graphics card?

So I can do some decent overclocking with an extra fan? Nice. But why do you see cards that do the same thing but one costs $100 more because of an extra fan?

a, yes, you can. be sure you have enough fans to keep your system cool when oc'ing.

b, because the companies can (i can't think of a better reason. ~_~. It's not that the parts cost $100.)

That's kind of stupid. I find cards all the time that do the EXACT same thing and have HUGE price differences.
