Asus 8800gtx 768mb

Tech Lounge tells us why we might not want to buy this card:

There are only a handful of variants of the 8800GTX, mostly different shrouds on the stock cooler, or maybe a neat (or tasteless) sticker, because there hasn't been any need for changes. The reference design is very good, and the heatsink fans run inaudibly. The heatsink runs nearly the full length of the card and takes up an additional slot. The fan intakes air and exhausts out the back of the case. The reference design does the job well.

Asus' 8800GTX is no different. It is HDCP compliant, and it has a stock cooler, with a plain Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter sticker, and an Asus-branded fan sticker. This is likely indicative that the game is bundled with the card. Oh look! It is.
