There needs to be a breakdown not only by Chipset Model Number, but by 
BRAND of manufacture for the card.  Not all "NVidia" cards are equal, even 
if they have the same RAM and the same NVidia chipset.

I found this out the hard way when Fry's had the GT-280 cards on sale, and 
I bought a BFTech 1 GB RAM card, thinking it was going to equal my existing 
280 card by EVGA, which had the exact same chipset and RAM.  The BFTech 
card is about 25% slower running the same CUDA and DNetC software (even 
swapped cards in the same machine).

So a listing of cards by the Chipset Model Number may not be as informative 
as one would expect!
