Listed there as $216. I have seen them for $200, so look around. The 1GB version will give you a little bit better performance in games if you can find them. if it were strictly for folding I would not worry, but if you are going to game on it take a look around and see if anyone has a 1GB model.

That's the TR model. Only 2 year warranty.

I suggest you purchase directly from EVGA. Newegg has some competitive pricing as well!

It would be my choice now that XFX & BFG are out of the game.
