4850

I'm only suggesting this because you aren't using SLI on your motherboard.

i dont really want to spend more than the gift card, including tax.
I could get an 8800GT for half that price, and then i can SLI, which i think performs better than the 4850.

A camera bag if you have a camera. Memory cards. Stack of movies you haven't seen before.

8800GT SLI destroys the HD4850.

i was thinking of spending a bit more to get the wii fit for my mom to exercise with.
But is it good for the price?
i know its not as good as regular exercise, but my mom is usually busy and tired.

i think its funny how some people got mad at the game for calling them overweight.
