WOW!! What a great deal.

Is this for real, or is it a misprint?

Please don't buy one! I don't like to see anyone get ripped off. It's fillrate is a pathetic 1.3 gigatexels/second. Grab a GeForce4-Ti4200 or GeForce4-Ti4800SE (Ti4400 with AGP 8x) and overclock to the limit. You'll be glad you did.:ignored:

who needs dx9 now:p
id buy the cheapest gf4 ti and when dx9 games start to whow up (i mean that they really use i,t not some fancy features to show how cool dx9 is:D :p ) then buy the dx9 card of your choice...

It was not 99.00, it was a misprint in the ad.. I could not get it for 99.00 even the ad said it was the ultra version. Bestbuy made a mistake and pulled them from the selves till the sale is over.

I brought the 9500 pro instead!!

So, far all my games work and look outstanding! No driver issuses so far. Over the last 3 weeks i have had a 5200 fx by pny, and a ti4200 and this card beats them all. I had problems with nvidia in the past
