Look at the pics, you get like splinter cell, and prince of persia, granted im sure they affect the price abit, but w/e. Some people have gotten the same card, without the big heatsink fan, they had the standerd one. Just make sure, you get the one there.

I saw the Pics ^^ But I wasn't sure if you realllllly got the games lol

So if they send me one that doesn't have the big heatsink send it back^^

Also so what do you mean by single slot...? Would the one you put a link to be a single slot...

Single slot ver, not as a good cooling. Single meaning, one PCI-E slot, if your gonna sli get this, if your not, then the one with the bigger cooling is for you. See when you install a vid card, they get turned upside down, so the fan would be to the bottom of your case, Thing is, the heatsink is soo big that it blocks your other pci slots.

I have that board, its hot.

And, believe it or not, you can mod that board to do SLI, It has two PCI-E slots, which dont use sli, instead, the second one holds a sec vid card, and just uses the DVI ports so you can quad moniters...stupid, yes!

lol the dumbest question on earth: So it runs hot^^?

So if I do get the one with the big heat sink it would put turning my board to SLI out of the question....?

Ok so bigheatsink=no sli because of blocking other slot:\

Yes, but if ya want sli, youll have to get a single slot ver. Its up to you. If you are dead set on future sli get a reg ol 6800gt.
