Default Difference between 7800GT cards?

http://promotions.newegg.com/NVIDIA/...905/index.html

I am looking at the three eVGA cards. The one on the top left has faster speeds so, but the other two don't appear to have any difference? Also, is the top left one the CO edition? What's special about the CO edition? Thanks.

While I'm at it, how's my potential system look?

Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
XP90 w/ Zalman 92mm adjustable fan
DFI Lanparty UT nf4 Ultra-d
Corsair Valueselect 2x1GB
eVGA 7800GT
Samsung Spinpoint P Series 160GB Sata3.0GB/s
Cooler Master Centurion 5
FSP Group (Fortron Source) 450W
Lite-On CD-RW/DVD-ROM

Edit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130256 I was looking around and I found another version, this one without COD2, that confirms it has the copper heatsink. Should i go with this one since I don't care about getting COD2?

how much is that puppy gonna cost is the question. I can barely afford the described system above, so it's unlikely I will be able to go for that asus board.

I dont think there is an actual difference, really. Maybe just clock speed is varied a little bit. I would go with the one that is the CO edition, which costs $369

I believe the heatsinks are different. Like on the cheaper one it is made of aluminum and on the more expensive one it is made of copper.
