Default ATI 9800 XT deal or not

I was looking around at some graphic cards and saw the ATI Radeon 9800 Xtreme Version 256MB AGP 8X Game Buster- Retail Box for only $$$$ 183. I thought this is impossible. Free shipping too. I looked up and this is an YAHOO store.

Look for yourself at http://www.komusa.com/fcoatira98xt.html and tell me if this is a deal or not. Tell me if I should trust the site or not.

Thanks guy

It looks like its only 128-bit It is a 9800XT though. It does however look too good to be true. I don't really know...its your decision.

Horrible, its not worth 183, its NOT an XT and its not eve 256bit. Go with a REAL 9800Pro 256 bit either 128 or 256mb.

That must be why they call it XTreme, to fool people into thinking its an XT. It does use the R360 (XT) core, however.

I just bought a Radeon 9800pro 128mb/256bit Agp 8x card on eBay for $175. It has the 360 core cause the memory is in an L shape.

no 9800pro has the r360 core. 9800pro is only r350.
