cards with higher performance and higher price tags available.
For those shopping for stock cards at $399.99 Newegg has BFG, PNY and a XFX

The most expensive GTX 260 listed on the site is the EVGA GTX 260 FTW

EVGA is available for $424.99 with a 626 MHz core and 2,106 MHz memory clock.
An EVGA Superclocked edition GTX 260 is also offered at $409.99, a mere $10
more than the stock clocked cards.
The EVGA Superclocked version has a core clock of 602 MHz (stock is 576 MHz)
and the memory clock is 2,052 MHz (stock is 2,000 MHz). Both BFG and XFX have
overclocked versions of the GTX 260 coming as well.
