Well that's because originally when they launched, they were the same price as a standard 768MB card, but were neutered Cuda Core wise. However, with some elbow grease, crush a stock 1GB card. Still, for the money at the time, the standard 1GB card was way better value.

Now when you factor in a price of $99 with free shipping, it is definitely great bang for you buck as far as a placeholder card goes.

Yes they do, but they are not new for $100 with free shipping, otherwise I would have suggested that.

True, but it's better than paying $100 for Billy's burned out, basement mill dew, cat hair, and cigarette infused pile of junk.

I agree! In fact, I sold my older GTX 460's to a guy on here for $220 shipped, and they were mint when I upgraded to GTX 570's.
