Make sure your power supply can support it:

450 Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended (550 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)
Certified power supplies are recommended. Refer to http://ati.amd.com/certifiedPSU for a list of Certified products.

No tax for you, maybe.

I live in Memphis, TN. I get most things I order next day (with the default shipping option) if it comes from the Memphis warehouse, but I get taxed no matter which warehouse it comes from.

Funny but thats exactly what it says on the ATI site about the 3800 series as well. Now it dosent take a genius to know something isnt quite right when they are claiming the need for the same amount of power for a card that draws about 80 watts and one that draws about 110 watts, thats 6.6 Amps or 9.1. So either they are way over estimating the 3800 cards or letting the 4800 cards run close to the edge. My guess is they are way overestimating both.

you can get the same one from newegg for the same price and then get a $30 rebate on top of it.

well i don't know about u guys but i dont rely on rebates as they take 3 months to receive...
the 4850 they have at bestbuy is the visiontech and it comes with a $10 gift card so its $150 if u take the tax out of the $10 gift card... no shipping...
i think for bestbuy its an amazing deal...

also the cheapest newegg has is $140 after a $30 rebate... which means you have to pay $170.... and the game it comes with sucks a$$...

I just went to best buy's website and they have the 4870 for $250 plus you get a $10 gift card. The funniest part is that every time I go in my local best buy is that they have an 8600gts right out front on display for $279.

i was originally waiting for the sapphire card to lower, but i heard their rebates are a b|tch... i don't like the fact theres a second slot open in the back... ill just cover it with some tape >.>


edit
