GTX 570's on newegg... can you spot the difference?

I've been shopping GTX 570's on newegg for the past couple weeks (Thanks for the suggestion Kris) waiting for the prices to drop down.

Anyway, today I checked and there are two (what appear to me) to be identical GTX570's... but one is 30 dollars cheaper (with rebate).

Here is the comparison link
They have very slightly different model numbers, and looking at the actual picture it looks like maybe the heat exahaust is different?

The more expensive one has 300 reviews, and the cheaper one only has 100... which makes me wonder if theres something wrong with the cheaper one, thats making newegg shoppers steer clear?

What am I missing here?

EDIT: Looks like the physical dimensions are just a little different as well....

The $239.99 version has a Display Port, the $259 version doesn't.

Don't know why that makes it cheaper though....

An interface you likely don't have a monitor with it so its most likely useless to you.

$219 for a 570 is a killer price. I wouldn't wait long on that one.

^ This is truth.

I snagged a Zotac 570 for $200 flat last month. It sold out in a couple days.

Ugh! Just when I'm getting ready to make a purchase...

So what's better? A GTX 570 or the new GTX 660 (non ti)? They're almost the same price.
