My local BestBuy has a PNY 8800GT 512MB for $139.99 (retail, no mail-in rebate). It's weird seeing it there on the shelf below another 8800GT prices at $229, and a 9600GT priced at $179.

Given that it's the same price I paid for my 9600GT, I wish I had seen this card, oh, about 2-3 weeks ago.

Here it is on their website for $149.99, but it's $10 cheaper in store.

They had the same sale a couple weeks ago. I bought a PNY 8800gt from them for about $160 then. Seems they lowered the price $20 and put it on sale again. Right after the first sale of this PNY 8800gt, BB had a sale on AMD 3870 cards for $170. Then they dropped the price of the 3870 to $130.

There are quite a few good sales going on right now. Most likely clearing inventory for the next gen cards.

Shows in stock for me! Or are you talking about In Store? Looks to be Online Only Sale. Helluva deal! Newegg has the MSI 8800GT that I have down to 174.99!

Lol, I'm half tempted to just grab one. Nice deal...I've had 2 PNY cards in the past and never had issues with them, but for that price? Maybe.

go for it.

easily the best bang for the buck card ive ever owned, and that price is even better. i mean, it wont beat your 9800GTX or anything, but it's no slouch :)

Damn, that is an extremely nice price.

You can build such a nice mid-range gaming rig for so freaking cheap right now...

I saw this the other day and I bought mine less than a year ago for $300. I haven't had a single issue with my PNY, and was worried as I had never owned one.

I wish I would see an improvement in the games I play or I would sli at that price.
