HMM weird...I don't know and can't seem to find any info. However note the models are PVT70GUDE7 and PVT70GUDF7. *USUALLY* a single digit change is on product numbers when there is only a minor revision e.g., heatsink for first version could have defects so new revision uses another heatsink design, capacitors used on original were too close to the GPU and might potentially overheat so new version spaces them more, etc. Basically my guess is no noticeable difference but the new one is designed better or has a slight change that allows the manufacturer to save an additional 5 cents or so per video card during manufacturing process.

The XFX PVT70GUDE7 has a regular 4 pin molex power connection where as the PVT70GUDF7 has the six pin sli power connection. As far as I know that is the only non-aesthetic difference. Personally I'm getting the XFX PVT70GUDE7 because my power supply does not have an sli connection and because if looks cooler.

Thanks for the interesting info. I am guessing they anyway ship a converter for those with no SLI PSU.

I notice that here in Europe the 7800GT is becoming difficut to find with
stocks running very low. Is this the same in the US? Is this possibly
a sign that they will add to the top of their line cards and then drop
prices of existing ones?

I have no problems finding 7800GTs in the states. Also, rumors seem to place the release of the 7900GT(X) in early to mid March (in Taiwain?). I'm too busy at the moment to find the links but you can just google GeForce 7900GTX and find stuff.
