Default Ridiculously cheap x850xt?

On newegg, they have a "SAPPHIRE 100106SR-RD Radeon X850XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail" for only 230 dollars.


Now, maybe im just being paranoid, because the OEM refurbished x850xt's are at LEAST 250, and the retail ones are usually 350+. So im kind of curious why this one is only 230. Thoughts?

Doesn't suprise me at all...considering Sapphire ships the x800GTO2 cores which are basically XTPE cores with a slower bios shipped with them for about $200

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

The X850XT is behind its time, its about time the price go down. X850XT thats more expensive than a 7800GT is a plain rip-off.
