I wouldn't buy it especially the info is very conflicting. Probably a scam to get you to buy it but it may be a different GPU (GTX260 instead GTX280).

See the info sheet:

Product Description - PNY GeForce 200 GTX 280 - graphics adapter - GF GTX 260 - 1 GB
Device Type - Graphics adapter
Enclosure Type - Plug-in card
Interface Type - PCI Express 2.0 x16
Graphics Processor / Vendor - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

the 260's are listed differently and are sold out.

Here's another GTX 280 at TheNerds.net for $317.99 plus $19.08 UPS ground shipping, looks legit, they currently have 8 in stock as of 10:43 PM MST

I would buy one but I would have to upgrade my PSU

That shipping fee is a ripoff (unless they are talking about shipping it internationally). I disrespect people/business who charge a little less on the products than charge ridiculous shipping fee to cover it something else. I call it "making money the backdoor way." I would never ever do that. I salute people/business who make money the "frontdoor way" even if the actual price of the product is a little high, at least they are not doing business the hideous way. Whenever I see an Ebayer doing that, it just pi$$es me off.
