I was looking at a little cheaper. I see the 5670 for $54.99 after rebates. Is it any good?

I was looking around on ebay for a card for my friend and I grabbed him a 9800gtx for $42 I know they run most things well up to 1680x1050. Not sayin it's the best card but for $42 i didn't figure i could do much better. There were a few more in that price range.

9800gt is on sale down the street at microcenter for $45 and is very tempting.

The g92 cards are still nice. Price of $45 is no to bad, as amazon shows $60 for the cheapest.

Ended up going with this instead for $79.99 w/ $10 MIR. The 9800gt was a zotac that was apparently underclocked.

Newegg.com - HIS H667FS1G Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Any thoughts? Still waiting for it to arrive.
