GTX 470-465 Rip off?

I was looking for a graphics card but they are all expensive lol. I wanted a cheaper graphics card so I went on Newegg to look for one and i found a $65 GTX 470/465 which I dont really understand. I saw a lot other prices and they were much more expensive than the $65 one. So I'm wondering if this is some sort of rip-off. The ratings are 5/5 so can you guys please tell me if this is a rip or not?

ZALMAN VF3000F(GTX470/465) VGA Cooler with dual 92mm fans, Fan Mate 2, Super Thermal Grease, IHD technology, Nvidia Fermi GTX470 and GTX 465

    lol it says vga cooler bro...its a fan that can be mounted on a 470/465....GTX card is sold separately...also if you look closely there is no graphic card in the picture

    I guess its a good think you asked btw... made me laugh and you didn't waste you're money... win-win situation,

    What is your budget and the rest of your system (especially power supply) and I (and others) will recommend you the best graphics card for the money to buy
  2. That's just the cooler, it doesnt include a video card. It's similar to buying an aftermarket cooler to keep you CPU temperatures lower.

    Oh I see.. Well I was just planning to upgrade a computer I bought. Specs are here.

    I already decided on a cpu, mobo, and ram, but I'm still unsure about graphics card for a low price. My budget ranges from 140 and under for the gpu. I'm going to be playing starcraft 2 and I want at least high settings no lag 1600 x 900 resolution.

    CPU - Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition

    MOBO - ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

    GPU (that I thought about) - SAPPHIRE 100282XTREME Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

    BTW, is this compatible with all my other things like my harddrive and stuff. Will this all fit into my case? Will I need another fan to keep it cool? (My house doesnt really get hot) I still want the CPU, but can I go cheaper with all the other things?
