Dumb n00b question here but what is the difference between these two cards...they seem the same to me

EVGA 512 p3 n841 ar 8800 GTS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and

EVGA 512 p3 n841 a3 8800 GTS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Is the second one worth paying the extra 50 $ for?

Thanks in advance!

the one that cost $50 more comes with crysis...if you don't plan on getting the game or already have it...def. get the cheaper one....both 8800GTS cards are exactly the same...only difference is 1 comes with a game the other doesn't.

Unless you know you will trade up to a more expensive card it is not worth it. You can buy Crysis for less than that. If you trade up though to say an 9800GX2, you have a higher trade in value and get to keep crysis free. I'd still just grab the cheaper one though.

Mirroring what pauldh is saying if you want to trade up or just plain have a preferance for EVGA then stick with his recomendations. If you dont plan to trade up etc then there is a lot to like about this card.

I was going to mention that but hated seeing the price jumped $20. That never sits well with me.

Yes that riles me also but it still represents a real alternative in my opinion, if it goes much higher i will stop recomending it, I just wish that the companies MSI/EVGA/HIS/ASUS etc would stamp a RRP on the cards to stop this blatant profitering.
