Default XFX GTX 260 BLACK EDITION

I have decided I am going to try SLI and I am looking for another XFX GTX 260 Black Edition Video Card.

Zipzoomfly had one for $189 and free shipping....when I went to order, I missed out, just my luck.....it was $259.......too much for me.

If anyone runs across one...please post it for me here, or if anybody has one for sale.

I know I can use two different kinds of GTX 260's.....I would just like to get one identicle to mine.......thanks
