Default 9600gt kfa2 512mb.

I just ordered a 9600gt kfa2 card for my new build because it was a very good price, $136.99 after MIR. It already comes oced past 8800gt performance but i don't get the kfa2 part, what does that mean? I was planning on getting an 8800gt 512 but it doesn't have tri sli capabilities (i prob won't use it but its nice to have) and what would be the point when this card already has better performance out of the box for way cheaper.

are you talking about the Galaxy one? because I think thats the one thats OC's further, and is already SSC (Super Superclocked) and a better aftermarket cooler

I don't think it really means anything, but what I said above, because there is a normal Galaxy 9600gt thats not super clocked and just has the Custom Cooler

i really don't get why galaxy brand is cheaper then the others, they almost all have better cooling, and oc better.

Edit: why is this being in the hardware troubleshooting section funny?

yeah, a $50.00 MIR, but even the 8800gt's without a MIR are still only like 180, when an evga is around 210.
