Hello again folks.

Would this video card be considered a "Low Grade Gold Finger Card WITH Fan or Heatsink" or "Gold Finger Card with Oversize Heatsink or Fan"?

I ask because one is double the price of the other.

Thanks Lost!

I had a feeling that might have been the case but just wanted to be sure.

This is about as over sized as you can get. One full side and half the other.

I meant by coverage, not size.

PCIe mechanical hard drives have fans and fins you wouldn’t believe taking up four slots. (Seriously who thought that was a good idea?!? A hard drive on a PCIe card with double mount brackets and 4lbs of fins? I’ll take a portable usb any day!)
