Default was this a good deal?

just bought the nvidia geforce 7300 GT for my desktop computer. not for gaming, simply for school, the odd movie, and maybe some picture editing.

i only payed $85.00 for the card, did i get a good deal?

I don't think it was TBH, you could have got a HD 4670 for the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102792 which not only is much faster, but also has better HD encoding and playback capabilities.

NCIX.COM and a few other major online retailers have had it for $35. As it's not a currently produced card, they are not really in production anymore. And while we are talking of cheap other cards, http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...8&promoid=1074
