"Where those factors are concerned, the Black Edition is well-priced. I checked out similar cards from other manufacturers, and none were directly comparable with this one. Some had high overclocks (the closest was 650MHz Core), but didn't include a game. The ones that did include a game, had stock or very minor factory overclocks. So when taking everything into consideration, $300 - $310 for the Black Edition turns out to be a very reasonable price.
Bottom line? If you want to save some money but still want a fantastic gaming experience, pick up an original GTX 260 or HD 4870. If you want an enhanced experience that almost matches the performance of the GTX 280 and also have the benefit of a "free" game, the Black Edition is a no-brainer. This card impressed me for multiple reasons, and I have a hard time finding a single real downside, and for that, it earns our Editor's Choice award."
