Default Crucial Radeon 9800 Pro?

I just saw a magazine advertisement for this, and it starts "as low as" $369!

What makes this card so much better than ATI or Sapphire? IS IT better?

The crucial brand is just the memory used in the card. The gpu is still ATI. They sell these because crucial ram is pretty good.

Should I go for it, despite the huge price increase from a Sapphire or ATI? I don't imagine it'd be worth it for better RAM.

Hehe, I try to be as unbiased as possible but sometimes I can be a bit one sided.
