Default Best Buy is cheaper than Newegg.. crazy!

This is unbelievable... Best Buy is actually selling something that isn't severely overpriced... but rather cheaper than Newegg and Zipzoomfly!

VisionTek - ATI RADEON HD2900 XT Graphics Card - A2900XT512 $379

Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H290XT512DVN-R Radeon HD 2900 XT 512MB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail $409 after rebate, and then the cost of shipping.

I'm not supporting this card, but I stumbled upon it on Best Buy's page and thought it was worth a post

And this is overclocked.

True.....but that's a good deal for someone, who knows what it takes to power the GTX.

I looked at the price with tax and it would run me $337 and 2 weeks delivery. Nice but I can get the EVGA stock for $349 in 3 days. Not that much of a difference to warrant the change for me personally.

Very nice deal nonetheless.

I'm pretty sure you're talking about the one on newegg, if you are that's after a mail in rebate, plus you could probably do an in store pickup. I don't think it charges tax from online purchases (at least not in my state), so best buy would be a better deal.
