Question hmm, little q

What makes this cost more
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDF4 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

than this
Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYHE4 GeForce 8800GT Extreme 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

why is the second one $10 cheaper when the Core clock and Memory Clock are a bit higher. Me = confused

All 8800GT are the same except there fans.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYHE4 GeForce 8800GT Extreme 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

This one is factory overclocked already. This one has 2 DVI while the other one has 1. Also the ports are different. I would pick the Extreme because it is cheaper and better.
