Clicking the Manufacturers number brings up a <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?DEPA=0&de..." target="_new">newegg link</A>. Looks to be the real 256-bit Radeon 9800 (non-pro). Not a bad price if you trust PowerColor.

What about <A HREF="http://www.maincomp.com/shop/product.jsp?id=671&pw=" target="_new">this model</A> vs. the one from newegg? Do you think they are the same thing? All it says is "Retail Box". I have a feeling that its the card, drivers cd, and a fancy box for $20 less than what it is at newegg.

No conspiracy there. Price at newegg might be bcos of surplus or lack of quantity.

You shld go in for retail.

No because that is a Radeon 9800 Pro retail, the other is a Radeon 9800 (non pro, non se). Look at the core and mem clock speeds, you'll see the Pro is clocked higher therefore faster. :tongue:
