In the GAMING PC, Core 2 DDR2 Gaming System configuration (also other configurations), there are two options in the PCI Express x16 Video Cards drop-down box for what appear to be the exact same card:
eVGA, e-GeForce 8800 GTS 670MHz, 512MB DDR3 1940MHz, PCIe x16 SLI, DVI /2, HDTV/S-Video/Composite Out, Retail
eVGA, e-GeForce 8800 GTS 670MHz, 512MB DDR3 1940MHz, PCIe x16 SLI, 2x DVI, HDTV/S-Video/Composite Out, Retail
This card is listed twice, with two different costs. Clicking on "more info" for each card sends you to two different pages, that are exactly the same, except for the Part Numbers... AR vs. A3
Mfg. Part No. 512-P3-N841-AR
Item Code. VCX-EVG-512P3N841AR
Mfg. Part No. 512-P3-N841-A3
Item Code. VCX-EVG-512P3N841A3
The A3 card is $22.40 more than the AR card. I can't see any difference in the descriptions on the product pages (except one has "DVI /2" and the other has "2x DVI").
So... I did some checking around. What I came up with is:
512-P3-N841-AR: Based on this information at eVGA's web site, this card is actually running the GPU at 650MHz, not 670Mhz. The pdf of the product spec sheet does list 670Mhz, but it also doesn't specify the part number revision on it (e.g. AR), so I think the AR is actually 650MHz.
512-P3-N841-A3: Based on this information at newegg.com and this review at legitreviews.com, this version does indeed run at 670Mhz, and is known as the Crysis version, because it came bundled with the Crysis game.
Anyway, I thought you might want to fix things in your database, both with the listing in the drop-down box, and the product pages.
