Default Computer Store Thanksgiving Specials

I'm planning on buying a new video card tomorrow, and I'm curious as to which deal is better, as far the performance to price ratio. Best Buy is offering the ATi Radeon 9600XT for $99 after rebates, and Circuit City is offering the ATi Radeon 9800Pro for $149 after rebates. Which do you think is the better deal?

I would have to say that the Best Buy ad is dominating Black Friday this year. So far I have $1,100 of stuff that I plan or hope to get and all of it is coming from best buy except for one $70 thing from Staples. I was pretty disappointed in Circuit City's ad.

Does anyone know of anyplace that is having a deal on either an MX1000 mouse or TV tuner card?

9800 Pro. I think there is a way to clock it to the 9800XT specs.
3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.

Get the 9800 Pro. Its way better than the 9600XT. I played Doom on a 9600XT, and I didn't like what I saw. The 9800 Pro is way better.
