Default Hot Deal or Stay away? Ati 9600 XT 256 for $49

Saw this at Fry's:

http://shop1.outpost.com/product/4002952

For $50, I don't know if there's a better card out there. Yeah I know there better cards for 100+, but it seems things under $75 don't offer much.

Can anyone offer a better suggestion? I'm thinking of picking this up. Any other suggestions are welcome.

Good deal, but the card is fairly outdated.

50 for a 9600XT? **** thats a steal man not a deal. The Visiontek boards allow for some extreme OCing w/ ATI chips. For 100 though you could get a better deal elsewear. Not sure though.

Thats an amazing card for your mobo, I say go for it.
Plus the XT is a great OC'er.
Although it is a bit outdated, it can run Half-Life 2, Counter Strike Source, Doom 3, Far Cry, basically a ton of the good ones.
