The card was EVGA Geforce 6600 gt (GDDR 3, 128 mb, AGP 8x). That is pretty much what the outside of the box said.

Newegg has this card for $149.99 (but I just noticed they are offering a $20 rebate so then no, I will end up NOT saving $20 by going to CC). I got it at Circuit for $249.99 and then there are two separate $50 rebates which equal $100 bringing the price of the card down to $149.99 (+ tax)

I was equally suprised to see this card at a big company for around the same price as newegg, after rebates that is.

I've never had a problem with receiving rebates from Circuit City before, so I never questioned that.

But yes I do hope "to hell and back" that I get the rebates or I will have been screwed over big time.

One of the main reasons that I went out to local stores to get it, is that I needed this computer fixed pronto and really couldn't wait any longer (as its been out since last Saturday). I have lots of things due for school coming up and I just needed it up and running. I understand that newegg usually gets things shipped out fast, but then I would have to wait the weekend and yeah you get the drift. Just couldn't wait any longer.
