you ve got some capacitors there, its also very universal across the connections whether its six or eight pin so its not like they didnt put any thought into it. I was about to buy one myself so even if the shipping is close to the price, I will prolly get it for my FTW. some more info about it here: http://www.evga.com/articles/01051/evga-powerlink/
and the mark up is fair imo, and it's really histerical how people judge mark up. evga aint a non profit company. this thing solves a particular problem in some particular builds and people have a need for it.
