Not quite as good as the November-December deals, but not bad. $50 after a $40 rebate at Frys.com. Plus Sales Tax and shipping, but eligible for in-store pickup (no shipping). This is the same deal as last month that expired on Feb. 16th. More shaders (96 vs 48), smaller memory interface (192-bit vs 256-bit), and slower core clock (550 MHz vs 650 MHz) than the recent (Newegg) EVGA 512 MB deal.

Good deal. This is definitely a better card - and a true 9600GSO. The hacked down models with half the shaders just don't cut it, even with a wider memory interface. This is a good upgrade for an older computer, especially for $50. I'd be looking for an HD4850 for a newer computer, which can be found for about $100 now - and will double the speed of this 9600GSO in many instances. It all depends on what you are using it for -- but at least we've finally got to the point with video hardware that you get what you pay for.

This is a good upgrade for an older computer, especially for $50. If this is the referenced "old" 9600GSO, the core can hit 650 MHz easy with the memory at 1 GHz (1 ns).
You must have missed that Asus 4870 512 MB at $110 AR. Take a guess what Newegg is charging now.

You mean, the video card in this deal last month is basically a different item?
