Yes, please be careful with the model numbers.  Additionally, the one
from futurepowerpc.com (VCG62128APB) is a 128MB card, whereas the one at
NewEgg was a 256MB card.

I just did a quick search on the VCG62128APB part number, and it looks
like JR.com and Buy.com both carry the retail box.  Buy.com doesn't list
the outputs correctly for this model number, which immediately makes me
suspicious.  JR.com mentions in passing the HD output.  Both have $10
off by using Google Checkout.

Now, don't get me wrong.. I'm not advocating this card.  It's just a
suggestion.  I personally use the fan-version of this card in one of my
MythTV front end systems and it works great, but the fan is a bit
noisy.  Be sure to check out the Component Out Wiki entry
(http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/ComponentOut) when setting up your
nVidia card for component output.
