I'm looking at Quadro prices online (where suppliers actually have any inbound) and I notice that HP Branded "Smart Buy" part numbers cost significantly less...sometimes more than half as much....than other brands, including HP's own non-Smart Buy parts.

Comparing specs, they seem to be identical. Anyone know what the catch is (if any)?
