    What exactly justifies the extra $20 between these two cards?

    Sapphire 6950 2GB

    Sapphire 6950 2GB Dirt3

    It couldn't possibly be that one comes with Dirt 3 because that is free...

    So does having the extra DVI-I connector and the uniformity in color between the connectors justify the extra $20?

    Answer found: high grade HDMI cable.

    Also, does anyone else think it makes more sense to do what HIS is doing on their card by putting VGA by the connector that actually supports it?

    HIS IceQ X Turbo 2GB

    Ask the retailer, they're the ones who price them. I doubt it has anything to do with marketing.

    Well I was going to, but then I took an arrow in the knee.

    Wouldn't the reason for the price actually go back to Sapphire? The retailer is buying them from the company and adjusts their price accordingly.
