Questions about these two EVGA GTX 460's

Hey guys! First post for me!

I've been doing a lot of research into buying a new computer, but I ran into a small hiccup on the graphics card. I don't know what the difference is between these two models being sold on newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

All I can see is the 1372 vs 1373 in the model number.

Is this referring to the manufacture date? Or are there greater implications than that?

Also, would the Sabertooth x58 be bad for SLI with these cards since the pci-e slots are so close? And is 750w enough to do these two in sli?

Thanks for the help guys! I couldn't find the answer... I think i'm all search engined out on all my other questions!

I just noticed an EE in the product title for 1373 model. What does that stand for?

the EE stands for External Exhaust

there is a small difference in the placement of the fan. one has it more centered, the GTX 460 is a cool running card so I doubt there is any real world difference between the two

Ha.... ok. So I DID notice before that the pictures looked different on some of the models. Thanks for solving that problem for me!

Anyone else for the answers about the motherboard(Sabertooth x58) and the pci slots being so close with sli with 2 460 GTX's, or about the 750w power supply?
I have a Corsair TX 750w btw

the corsair 750w will easily power your SLI PC.

as long as you have two free slots for each card (they take up two) your mobo will be fine

If you do get them to Sli them get the EE models. They will keep your case cooler. Otherwise get the other cooler model.
