plus, check out your local BestBuy, they had a $85 sale on a XFX 4850 1GB for in store pickup at select stores, maybe you're one of the lucky ones that live near a BB that's honoring that sale, ya never know...

Oh god really?

I don't think my BB has any 48xx cards anymore.

Any chance you could buy one and ship it to me?

All they have are super overpriced 57xx's

EDIT: This one? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/XFX+-+AT...&skuId=9254521
They have one at a BB about 15 miles away. It says $170 online though.

yeah, you have to be lucky, even if you go to a BestBuy that's honoring the sale (most of them aren't ) they have to have them in stock, other BBs won't pricematch, ugh, the BB near you not having them makes sense too, this is a closeout item sale, just like when they had the original Antec 900 for $60 a few months back because they weren't gonna stock them anymore, they are now stocking the Antec 900 Two, BB has some decent sales sometimes on closeout items, but their regular prices are usually pretty shameful...

Foothead, how does the 4850 compare to the gts 250. which one will outperform the other? Is the gts 250 worth the 120 dollars? or is there something better at 120 bucks

The same. Like identical performance.

The GTS can be set as a physX card when you upgrade and has 3Dvision support though.
