Default XFX 8800GT 256mb PCI-E $99 on Newegg ($30 MIR+Free Ship)

Lots of people probably have the email but this is a good deal to share. I think TD has a similar thing but this one is free shipping.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PUHD4 GeForce 8800GT XXX 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Use promo code EMCAFAJAD for $20 off and there you have it. Not the behemoth it once was but I don't think you can do better for that price. Still a good card and the price is excellent.

Wow, I wonder if the 512 is going to drop to something like 120 after MIR soon.

Thats where they stand on average, in some games the 9600gt comes out ahead due to the higher memory.

at 1280x1024, the 256mb and 512mb 8800gt are identical.
