Default 8800 Ultra @microcenter $559

For those looking for a card, microcenter has them on sale for 559. From just looking at froogle.com they seem to be the lowest priced ultra going right now and only a slightly bit higher than what most places are running GTX for. Seriously debating on hocking the GTS and picking one of these up. Must...stop...buying stuff.

microcenter is one of the greatest brick and mortar stores to buy from, they actually offer prices that are competitive to online stores 0_0

I wouldn't buy an 8800GTS anymore...the 2900 PRO is one **** of a card. I wonder what will be the best around 300 bucks in February when I upgrade my system :P
