"All first batches of 8800 series are made by one manufacturer IIRC. they can only have different thermal management. Just get one with the best cooler and longest warranty if they are priced the same"

"The first partner boards out of the gate will all be following this reference design - NVIDIA has had Flextronics make them for partners, who will add their own stickers to the cooler and box them up in their own manner."

I think your keyboard is messed up, every instance where a double-letter should be, there is a single letter. May want to check that out.
